    Before my Adam is awaken to find me
    I must fall back in love with the Almighty
    For I allowed thirst to persuade me to drift
    Causing my mind, body & soul to steadily rift
    My mind held hostage in a mental tug of war
    My flesh conveying it’s appetite to wander afar
    Whereas my soul cried stop the entanglements
    Screaming as ties formed became fatal ailments
    Internal conflict disguised by religion’s mask
    Pretending all was picture perfect and well
    While all the time damning my soul to hell
    Entering the edifice of the holy place often
    Even as the resolve of my salvation soften
    Wondering will they discern my intentions
    Or are they too spent with their pretensions
    Learned the postures of the holy scribes
    Just riding the waves of the routine tides
    Like a clown adorns his face for the show
    Weekly my church facade was bestowed
    Excellent at the practice of religious rhetoric
    While denying the dimensions of my heretics
    But somewhere at the bottom of this well
    My soul commence to breakdown and fail
    Awakening the divine within from the spell
    And the utter darkness begin to be dispelled
    Coming to my senses just in the nick of time
    Before all was lost without reason or rhyme
    Grace sufficient to keep me through it all
    Sustaining me till I'd again hear His call

    "Teach them the way of the Lord and they will not stray far from it."

    So many of us have stepped away from the path...only to find ourselves going back to our roots...back to the Grace and Wonder of our Lord. THANK YOU for reminding me of my path.

    Excellent Peace.
