Armour

 

Boots that have traveled many miles,

I put them on again,

For they have carried peace,

When hearts have been at war.

 

This belt that holds up my combat pants,

Reminds me of the Truth,

A Truth that is hidden within.

Like a compass that leads me homewards.

 

An armour plate covers my chest,

Protecting my heart and soul.

Beneath it are garments

And scars along with what is whole.

 

On my head I place a helmet,

A heavy reminder of what I have faced.

In it rests the picture of my saving grace;

My Salvation on nights of hate.

 

A sword at my side,

With Words engraved.

My left hand clenches a shield,

This shield that often mirrors my Faith.

 

I am covered from head to toe,

Yet I move freely about.

For often friends are foes,

In the night of doubt.

 

Every morning I put it on again,

Though none may see it.

Still I put it on again.

I walk the path.

Though not alone.

 

For my King goes before me

And after Him will I follow.
