Staring at the Son

Staring at the sun
     can hurt a lot,
And if for too long,
     you could go blind.
When bright sunlight
     floods your eyes, and
          delicate tissues burn,
               black holes that can't
                    ever be filled in again
                         are left empty behind.

Not so with staring at the Son;
     the more the better, says the Word.
Even more clearly will you see,
     with a vision toward eternity.
When the Light of God
     floods your eyes, true
          all things of this earth will
               be important none more,
                    as all else will fade away
                         and only Him, you will see.
