there is some mastery of my emotions
necessary to move forward
in my soul's progression
but I cannot do it yet
one moment I rave and curse God
and everything in creation for being foul and false
and the next moment the anger passes
and remorse reminds me I've again failed
to master my hurts and all it means to God
is a tally of plus and minus I must balance
if I am to achieve some measure
of forgiveness and grace...
bearing all liability even though God created everything
set all patterns and is the very life force
flowing through and sustaining all of us
though we cannot say so without 'falling from grace' as they say...
and so each day...ready or not...a damnation or salvation
swinging like a metronome to the tune of each
ordinary eternal day...
