Divinity Of Self

Beyond every question…

God is the answer

filling in the gaps of our imperfection

offering hope in the face of despair

light to shine through the darkness

and promise

when abandonment is all we feel

lifting the burden that covers our greatness

reaffirming our choices

strengthening our wills on the forge of His power

unblocking the final entryway

—to ourselves divine

Pascal’s Wager

There’s nothing objective about spirit,

in that lies its strength and its truth

 

Unable to measure, only to feel,

its critics profane and uncouth

 

Science declares it the enemy,

its formulas explaining away

 

Why love has no bearing and within it we’re lost

—God’s execution unstayed

Another Time

Both old and new thou must review,

changing pink to red

 

Those poorly formed, to stay forlorn,

hiding in their beds

 

Begin then end, begin again,

on chance the meaning fed

 

Whose banquet serves another time

—a feast eternal spread

‘The Difference’

Animals think,

and animals react

 

Animals sleep,

and animals attack

 

Animals eat,

and animals mate

 

Animals fly,

and animals wait

 

Animals feel,

and animals cry

 

Animals sicken,

and animals die

 

Animals come,

and animals go

 

Animals watch,

and animals know

 

Animals stalk,

and animals deceive

 

But animals lack faith

—and cannot believe

Hanging On

Diverting his eyes from that last final hour,

denying death its due

 

His conscience and awareness tight in his grip,

ownership unrenewed

 

Both arms around life, he’s forever rejected,

blinded as time starts to bleed

 

Meeting the end in a loss of control

—damned by what he won’t concede
