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
