From one of my favourite bloggers.

Mitch Teemley


Many say:

Those who do this

And steer clear of that

Clearly have God

Tucked under their hat

And those who’ve insured

Themselves against fire

By naming the cross

And defaming desire

Know that their names

Must appear on His list

And if He complains

They’ll firmly insist

“You’re mistaken, I’ve done

Everything that You said

I drank all Your wine

And ate all Your bread…

“So why don’t I feel

Like abiding here now?

You aren’t what I’ve loved

Where’s my sacred cow?

When I look all around

I don’t see a trace

Of the heaven I’ve built

No, not in this place”

But the One says:

There are those who have burned

In their hearts to heal others

And ached at the loss

Of sisters and brothers

Acquitting the worst

And illuming their night

And despite their own failings

Refusing the flight

That beckons with death
