The Seen and the Unseen of YOU

A mirror pretends
To tell the truth,
But so much more is hidden
Than the eye can see.
Oh, to look within the body;
What miracles lie beneath the skin?

Miniature factories,
Uniquely different, with input and output,
Busily working without vacation,
Intricately energized, communicating,
Designed for growth and survival;
Yes, God’s engineering is amazing:
The miracle of the inside of you.

Now ponder inside the unseen of you,
An invisible teammate,
More than an imagined accessory,
The life essence, spirit, gift of God,
Unseen, but intertwined with soul,
Allows the marvel of you
To ponder the meaning of life.
