Deliverance

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


Deliverance is an outcome bestowed by one's own hand,

through the travail of blood-letting and pain,

the ability to change thinking and to forgive those who fail us,

those filled with more ignorance than intent.


I hear the voices of blame and shudder,

knowing that holding fast the victim only prolongs the circumstance,

each breath the opportunity to change,

each step guiding what has been or what will be.


Why we seek deliverance is a misnomer,

always pursuing that which is not,

prescribing better from the eyes of a captive,

'if only' the echo of a stagnant mind.


What we construct in our zeal for gratification,

can often be the undoing of a life facing all the wrong directions,

and how we respond to our ignorance,

is to clutch tightly the thorns of discontent, that which we wish to replace.


We are complex in our movement, in our self-justification,

yet truth sits upon our shoulder like a proverbial monkey,

waiting patiently, observing, weighing us down,

until we are on our knees, confused and without answers.


Deliverance is a decision followed by an action,

in acceptance of our stagnancy and openness to change,

life always ready to accommodate broken chains,

and a step into an unencumbered light.
