(Matt 5: 14-16) “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” When God has completed his preparations, know that your moment has come, recognize you are no longer hidden from the world, realize you are now…

EXPOSED

by Edward Taylor III

My eyes widen with a sudden rush of blood to the head, Like a high school crush this lust has crushed all reason,

I grasp my chest to catch my breath, breathing in this moment, absorbing every detail, My body frozen in an intense spell;

Then they call me to front, each motion to the stage is a fantasy turned reality, Stepping to the microphone I switch my voice to swagger tone,

As I stand flat-footed,

I examine my gun, load my bullets, spoken word in the chamber, the crowd screaming for me to,

“Pull trigger!”

So I unleash words in rapid fire rhythm causing casualties of the mind;

Thoughts are transformed, spirits awakened, & hope is taken to new highest, metaphors pound on drums of the ear,

HEAR…

HEAR… HEAR…

The flow dripping from tongue, flood victims of poetic truth now I leave you,

Touched by passion & exposed to greatness,

NOW…!

Unshroud your eye’s…
