…”keep oneself unstained from the world.” James 1:26b
Under the stars, under the sea, under the tree with the red and yellow leaves
Under the wind whistling through the barn, under the moon round – golden and orange
Under their breath, I hear them whisper…living death
Under their stares, I feel sharp pain through glares
Under my hotdog, mustard drops on my new pink shirt and I feel like a hog
Under my stain, beats my heart of pain
Under the pain, my peace.
Unstained. I’m redeemed.
