• The Leap

    Every hero has a weakness.
    Every icon has a fault.

    Every human has failings.

    If you will revere a human,
    recognize that someone else just won’t.

    They’ll delight to find a flaw in your favorite
    and shout it around just to see him fall.

    It’s always easier to flatten giants
    by shouting facts about their faults
    Than to celebrate them as human beings
    who chose to live a life elevated.

    Who is better?
    The one who levels,
    or the one inspired by levitation?

    Overcoming the flaw makes the hero heroic.
    Overcoming the weakness makes the icon inspiring.

    Because every person has flaws and weaknesses.

    But despite this,
    some still choose to fly,
    and in doing so
    remind others that,
    being human like them,
    you don’t have to always
    live bound to the ground.

    A web programmer by day, I somehow still spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, God, and the significance of grace and love in daily events. I am old school in the sense that I believe in the reality of sin, and in the need of each human heart for deliverance to the Divine. I am one of those who believes that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and that you can find most answers to life's pressing issues in Him and His Word, the Bible. I ain't perfect, and a lot of the time I ain't good, but by God's grace and kindness, I am forgiven and free.
