Genesis January 2019

To truly capture the moment

realising time owns me

my master – enemy – friend

a paradoxical illusion

framework of dreams

mankind’s pathway to hope…

 

Reaching inwards

pulling apart ribs

to offer my heart

sacrifice to the universe

which deluded men pay no mind…

 

Building walls around their souls

constructing edifices to self

guided by pride, by fear

knowing not their fortresses are prisons,

prisms in reverse

 

Religion offering solace, order, comfort

ritualistic acts of piety

to a God who rends his cloak daily

at the futility of those

that are trying to earn salvation

through abstinence and deeds

 

Enlightenment obtained by grace

which brings change – shows mercy 

beyond comprehension dimension

even beyond time

yet in this moment

never beyond God’s transcendental love…
