It is a blatant answer

Foreordained in my heart

I will serve Jesus The Christ

To Him my likening impart


But I am trembling fierce

And my darkness in obscurity lingers

My maturity wanes in angst

Tarrying for an impregnated dreamer


Peradventure I am closed off

Shut away into my shaft

Buried in the tunnels of smuggling

Enclosed by the dreading drafts


One peek of light dwindles

The hole peeping with a whimper

Can my candle in my soul

Hold true to the temple?


My metaphors are symbols

Symbols acting as signs

Signs memorializing sacraments

Chanting, incensing, gravitating toward The Divine


The Blood of Jesus, His Blood

The Lamb Who takes away sin

My God, Humble Savior

With Whom there lies an end, but no end


Crawling to the core of earth

Visible yet am I

Losing my life in intention

“Is it not I?”


Who is above the Heavens

Under the earth-

Subdued His creation


Published by Matthew Pope

A graduate of Belmont Abbey College, a Catholic, private institution, Matthew received his Bachelors of Arts degree in Theology in May of 2012. Upon registering for pastoral training in August of 2013, he was formerly a Master of Divinity student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, pursuing the Evangelism program. With a transparent calling from God, his life dramatically changed as he received confirmation into The Catholic Church in November of 2016. Matthew's passion rests in serving the nations with the hope of The Gospel. Author of his lay-ministry, Even Unto The End Of The World, which was established on November 12, 2013, he has also produced his previous books: In Doctrine, Uncorrupt (which was released on February 15, 2014) and Assembled With One Accord (published on December 1, 2015), and is currently writing and planning for following books to come. With a revelatory vision, Matthew intends to encounter the culture and Christendom with truth. In addition, he intends to draw forth the rudiments of the Most Holy Catholic Faith to transform all Christian denominations into The One Church. Matthew confessed Jesus Christ as Savior at age seventeen, impressed with the desire to enter the ministry, in March of 2008. A native of Shelby, North Carolina, he was born on May 28, 1990. He now resides in Wake Forest, North Carolina where he has been actively writing since late 2013.
