Peeling away the Layers by Raymond A. Foss
Becoming like children
peeling away the layers
our experiences clouding
our vision of God

The lies of the world
layer upon layer
keeping us from truth
the simplicity of God

Love alone,
this is the message
all of the teachings
boiling down to this

The guile of those older
older than young children
trying to read more
into everything

God calling to us
come to me as a child
simple and humble
sit at my feet

The lesson of the greatest
in God’s heavenly kingdom
stripping away all pretense
coming to him humbly
humbly as a child
