psalm 9

psalm 9

this pair of eyes looks hard
up and down, around
seeing all there is to see
naturally, but with lenses self-crafted
that distort, deceive, and deny truth
mirroring back what my wicked heat desires

this pair of ears listens hard
hearing what there is to hear
naturally, but with filters self-designed
to mute or amplify or alter sounds
echoing back what my hungry heart requests

too much of me, ENOUGH of me 
give me Your eyes, Your ears
vision and perception Holy Spirit clarified
to know and be known by You

For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. 
Now I know in part, but then I shall know 
just as I also am known.
