you can then just because

you can get lost in a word
you can get lost in a thought
or a book can captivate you
can distract you from reality
you can get lost on a trail
you can see the moon during the day
it is like a frown
maybe it feels left out
when the sun gets all the attention
you can get lost on a tangent
or make sentence fragments
make others confused
whether you want to or not
you can get lost in a stare
and only realize that time goes by
so much faster when you are late
or when you procrastinate
you can be lost and not know it
you can be lost and like it
you can be lost and fed up
get caught up in being lost
get caught up on what you missed
or what has to be done
what you could have gotten done
get caught up in the mess
the stress the worry and
lose track of who you are
get caught up in which grass is greener
which mountain is higher
get caught up in comparing and contrasting
to the others caught up in fearing
intimidated by what is only a mask
masking with substance or introversion
temporary pleasure in even hangovers
what is simply covering insecurities
that he has she has we all have
just realize don't penalize
yourself for feeling that you're less
or have to catch up to the one
that might see you as best
relax don't worry about anything
instead pray about everything
instead embrace one vindication
His justification
instead be all that you can be
in Him in Christ in the one that made you
His plans for you are to prosper
if you just believe
instead don't think just trust
like a child be unto Him
why let your soul be cast down
instead let Him hold you
and collect your tears in His bottles
instead look in contrast to what He did
to that extent that He would go
out of love for your completion
for your peace and healing
so that you would see you
through the eyes of who created you
He knows your weakness
that is where He is strong
He knows the process
that is why first and foremost
Love is patient
He knows you are dark
yet calls you lovely
He knows your sins are like scarlet
they shall be as white as snow
He knows we like sheep have gone astray
we have turned, every one, to his own way
and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all
the Lord does not see as man sees
for man looks at the outward appearance
but the Lord looks at the heart
seek the Lord while you can find Him
call on Him now while He is near
draw near to Him and He will draw near to you
Now you belong to Christ Jesus
though you once were far away from God
now you have been brought near to Him
because of the blood of Christ
