An Ode to a Wayward Soul

A step you've come...

wayward soul...

but not far enough to see ...

coming this far you come far enough that perhaps a moments pause...

might enlighten a step you've not considered for something you need...


Belief in Father is not enough...

he never asked you to flog yourself...

there is a better course then grief and regret...

though as to that there is cause...

perhaps some purifying for the passage...


Consider the law to refine...

the next step is there, plain to see...

But perhaps not too plain as each has bible in hand but no understanding...

I would not put my Father over the Christian Gods...

Who they understand less then stars...

follow with the eyes of those who would flog themselves with no care to their back...

Looking up yet not understanding and claiming that incomprehension is a necessary course...


Why gave my Father the mind to masses...

in spiritual life that is all that matters...

if he was intending to boggle it past sensibility...

flexing His muscle to watch us swoon...

This isn't the Father the Hebrews knew but Christians love that kind of thing...


But as for Christians....

in strictest sense I find myself one but for my faith they say I'm not...

So let them have their way with that...

I will say what I must say...

wayward or not I cannot tell you...

I suppose you may know...

if these words do not prick ears...

on judgement day.

God bless my friend.

You have a rare gift: That of being able to put into a few words what many use many words to attempt and entirely miss the point.

More, please, give us more!
