Look up close
examine every part
draw near, pull back, and don't gloss over
Forget and you might miss
miss the wonder-beauty trapped within
the potential draped in rough.
Take time to wonder at creation
something yet untapped
but trying hard to surface
don't discard the shrouded rock
it's yet to be a David.
A diamond in the rough.
See the forest for the trees
as much as for the sapling
And love fellow man just as Christ
beyond what seems so plain.
So look up close to catch the treasure
then take a large step back
sit back and watch God's handiwork
the revealing of a man.
