forget the days of the past

you hung on my every word

I didn't want you to idolize me so

only human, I can't be your all

when you branched out on your own

dismissing your previous judgments

I rejoiced in seeing God's Hand upon you

we were pulling the yoke side by side

brush away the stinging comments

you are moving beyond familiar places

all you imagined to be perfect is only

flawed, limited, unapologetically human

before you can truly sink your roots

into deep and fortuitious soils, you must

visualize your idols off their pedestals

cracked open, full of ordinary stuff after all
