“What did you see?”
A question we ask of those who’ve been to other places and we want to know their experiences. This is our opportunity to live vicariously through their eyes. I do this often with friends myself, especially when I am working and really wanting to be somewhere else.
It’s an interesting question though when we apply it to the deeper things in life. For those who hunger for more than a passing existence, we are curious to know about the possibilities for more.
Can I be strong enough to look into the dark? Black roses, black lyrics, dark hearts…all of these I have both lived and written myself. None of these shock me. I can recognize them easily.
But what if the darkness disguises itself in light? White roses, white lyrics, light hearts? What if the truth of hope is dressed up just enough to look like the real thing? It guides us to believe we can eat of those sweet delicacies of sin. How would we distinguish the lie from a truth?
2 Cor 11:14 (CEV) And it is no wonder. Even Satan tries to make himself look like an angel of light.
