Covered In Dust

Covered in dust

Hardly recognizable

Do you see the person

He purposed me to be?

Where am I going?

Following closely

Listening for the voice

Even though unseen.

Covered in the dust

Of the only one who completes

When you look at me

Is it a reflection you see?

Walking so closely

In the shadow

Only glimpses of me

Hoping others perceive.

Treading along

A path unknown

Forming anew my spirit

Awash in dust I’ll be.

    Hey, I really like this poem. I mean, I REALLY like it!
    Maybe it’s just where I’m at right now. It’s pretty dusty over here.

    Thank you for sharing such encouraging words Cassandra! I love how poetry is so open to interpretation. Have you ever seen the Rob Bell message called Dust? It was really interesting to me when I listened to it a few months ago. I was thinking about it last week and thus the poem. — Amy
