there’s so much porn on Instagram
an app so easily obtained
the audience I reach out to
I’ve “seen” more than at the porn convention

unbelievable hashtags
an app linked to Facebook
an app linked to hell
the heart of the earth

there’s no way to shield my kids from the world
but there is a way
to make heaven seem so inviting
that the world doesn’t interest them

there’s a way to teach them goodness
so that when they encounter darkness
it doesn’t appeal to their senses

if I bottled them up
kept them in the house
when God called them to the world
would they be in shock

no, I want to teach them how to live
with the Kingdom inside them
in a world full of darkness
where they get to be Light

never under a table
never hidden away
but out in the open
where their light can be seen
