To Mortal Intellectuals of Varying Degrees...

PAD Challenge day 5: For today’s prompt, write an intelligence poem.

but let him who boasts boast of this, 
that he understands and knows Me, 
that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, 
justice and righteousness on earth; 
for I delight in these things," 
declares the LORD.…
Jer.9:23-24 



Before one biased breath boasts about Self’s ‘noteworthy’ show
Before one thought brags about strength in a weak moment, oh
Before the truth is proven of how much we really know
It behooves us to reckon the kind grace whereby we go

Before we claim the honor or the ownership of gifts
Look up to where a breath of air the breadth of heaven shifts
And recognize Who paints the skies and downcast eyes uplifts
And grounds us on the dirt that sings with miracles of His
