Hiding Is a Lie

hidingYou think you’re the first?
To try holding back, hiding–
That your pain is too great
Your hurt, too overwhelming
I have seen and I was there
The moment you were betrayed
The hour you cried out in fear
I was the light streaming
Through angry window shades
That tried to hold darkness in
I was the hope of your dreaming
Of a color-filled world and life
To break the drab spell of tears
I was the word spoken encouraging
Exposing then covering frailties
So you could see glimpses to freedom
And still, here I wait for you
Calling you to the place I Am
Trusting my voice to cut the noise
And draw you from the choking dark
That threatens you for daring
To exit your personal exile
Unwearied and undeterred, I work
Patiently and confidently, I wait

“Can a man hide himself in hiding places
So I do not see him?” declares the Lord.
“Do I not fill the heavens and the earth?” declares the Lord. –Jeremiah 23:24

Expressing my poetry side with a Warrior Poet Circle post.


  1. I’m so glad Kari shared her Virtual Influencers. I’m new here, and quickly subscribed. God has listened to my cries for help, and although the circumstances are yet to change . . . I am closer to Him than ever before. What a blessing to be yoked to the One who shoulders my burdens. Many blessings Jason, and thank you.
