Perfection's Promise

by louis gander  
11/08/2009 / Poetry


There is no perfect paper,
there is no perfect pen.
There is no perfect poem
that can be told by men.

There are no perfect phrases,
that offer perfect rhyme.
There are no perfect voices
to comfort us this time.

We chart the many poems
and give them all a grade -
or pass them off as faulty -
ignore, lest truth invade.

Poems by the millions
can offer but a clue -
to how our Savior really felt
when He was torn in two.

Though not a bone was broken,
though not a word was said -
Jesus broke that perfect mold
and showed us love instead.

If we can't see perfection,
from love that God bestowed -
from love that Jesus gave us,
from love that Jesus showed -

If we can't see perfection
in poetry and all -
then we will never understand
and God will never call.

So take this very poem
and rip it all to shreds -
if we can't see the promise
in what our Jesus said.

However, if our hearts are soft,
if humble we can be -
if we can rip ourselves from pride -
then Heaven we will see.

There is no perfect poem
that rockets off the chart -
unless we see God's promises -
down deep within our heart.
