Collateral Damage

An absolute truth; Although we are within the world, we are not of the world....

Leaning forward to take a scoop of dires dirt in hand; here amid this foreign land

Remembering what my Father had said, afore descending unto the valley below

Alpha's shadow of sorrow and death; Babylon. Cast into the fires hearth; wearing

Reasons woeful vesture ? Quite aware of this my greatest enmity; Purpose as dust

Blowing it's blood stained pangs still stirring betwixt, a tomorrow's passing wind....

Also knowing that I am never alone, nor have I ever been; We walk by faith not by 

Sight and such claims their own eyes; lack thereof that never was; blurry the glass ?
