happy now?

of course not

not even the strongest faith

can believe the reckless wholesale savaging

of the heart and soul

to scour it for some redemption

it is only our vanity that blocks us

from full appreciation of our salvation

(nothing I can do about the limitations of words

for their failure to ever convey the total reality

we ask too much of these inadequate symbols

and excuse ourselves with them)

oh value your ignorance for whatever you are aware of

you will be held responsible (happy now?)
