My Cheap & Paltry Skies

While I was thinking I was good,

in church while singing hymn -

my Lord was getting tortured so,

as they were whipping Him.


While boss was just not being fair

and I held righteous wrath -

my precious Lord lugged heavy cross

barefoot on stony path.


While I was wishing for a house

and dreaming how it'd be -

my Lord was tied and nailed tight

to hard and rugged tree.


While I stared at the deep blue sea

then wanted boat instead -

my Lord received more agony

by thorns forced on His head.


While I had found a car for sale,

a nice and perfect ride -

my Lord cried out in gruesome pain

long hours before He died.


While in anticipated dreams,

a playoff game begins.

My Lord, though, wasn't in the game,

but took away my sins.


While I was taking selfies here

and holding high, my phone -

the people thought they buried Him

behind one heavy stone.


I'm now regretting sinful ways,

collapsing in my cries.

My Lord has paid and rose above

my cheap and paltry skies.
