He chooses

Rank and order
Step for step
He choose the best in his eyes
Ignoring the truth preferring the lie
He watched us walk and talk not live
He saw us laugh and cry
I forgive

He chooses the best in his eye
The beauty queen
shallow as the Nile
flooding and waning
while the ocean stays strong
and forgives

He rides unsure currents
All depending on the tides
The one eye that watches over
his every good wind
never steers him strong.
He chooses the surf
Avoiding the constant current
Fighting what he cannot conquer
And forgive
