Faith verses a mirror.

The bible has no answer for what you see in a mirror.
That naked truth in your eyes looking into your soul.
How can it help you when all you see is black?

Where is the bible when you sleep in the night.
As you lie defenceless against your demons.
Do you think they care what the bible says?

Can a bible wash away the pain?
Of what you saw, smelt, tasted, and endured.
Can a bible wash blood from your hands?

I think not.

I wrote this in anger years ago.
High on meds, I was given a bible to ‘help’.
Who gave it me? Damned if I know. Where is it now?
Damned if I know, but I did get a replacement.
My father’s war bible.
