    desperation kills
    the kindness that freely
    connects
    us to cosmic goodness
    to one another
    we seek God
    by crawling inside ourselves
    craving the
    fellowship of theology
    the validation of our own thoughts
    justifing our haterd we shout
    meaningless platitudes
    in a language no one speaks
    promising money
    desperation conquers our soul
    erasing all images of God
    leaving only man
    crying, hoping for mercy
    from the devil

    Desperation brings out exactly what we're trying to avoid...untruth. I liked the way you flowed with this.
