Seven Sinners Prayer

 

one.

I look far, but I cannot see you, o light of the world!.

“He who has eyes”, He flashed.

two.

I have built a bridge of pearls, Lord. It is lined with grain as you instructed. All that I am, for you.

“Father forgive them what they do. It is all they know.”

three.

Blue rocks tower above me. The heavens are too open and bare. May I trade three stones for mammon?

“You have been weighed for the winter.”

four.

The mountain has erupted! The great river is deafening! The abyss!

A smile like a sunrise. “Peace, child. The meek shall bear it.”

five.

The birds have become still, Lord. Now their song is the sweet prayer of feathers.

“Consider, then, the lilies.” he replied.

six.

I shoot to the sun! By thy joy my wings rise, become the fire, lifting!

“No! I weep to cool you, down.”

seven.

Wormwood is among the children…unto the fourth generation it burrows…hope of the ages, even so I pray!

The Jesus man looked over all he had created. “It is good”, he nodded. “It is enough.”
