wild horses trained for service
ridden until their will is broken
compliant complete and grafted

Jesus said the meek are blessed
implying humility and gentleness
submission untamed or identified
God-willed rule denied incomplete

where are we on meekness scales
God not implying timid and weak
but humble compliant and broken
eternal peace He promised the meek

“The meek will inherit the land and enjoy great peace”—Psalm 37:11

    I should let you know I really liked your beautiful outlook of man and his pursuit of imperfection.
