I am human—unwittingly divine.

I am a bullfighter, yet scared of the dark.
I need no one but I desire your approval.
I am dazzling yet broken—desiring your acceptance.
I laugh through the day, but cry through the night.

I am—now I see—just like the moon.
I see a great darkness, but I light up the sky.
I am a shimmering frame hung out on display.
I am His great image—may I live in this way.

I was just human—unwittingly divine, but now I stand with You—alive and sublime.
