Inside out

Some poems and reflections on life

A post-modern psalm

1 Comment

Smoke cloud dims my view in front
I see you walking in the distance

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

Water swirls deepening red
Our pursuers cry out from the deep

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

Shouts of agony rend the air
You wrap your arms around me

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

A promise of hope is given
A land we cannot enter … yet

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

We raise up our greedy wealth
Melted into a golden beast

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

We build walls to keep ourselves intact
And slaughter the enemy before us

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

Our life is on borrowed time
We eat tomorrow’s bread today

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

We are not satisfied
We strive to be divine and end up less than human

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead

Where do we look for hope?
Where do we look for life?
Where do we look for tomorrow?

Seven billion angels dance on a pinhead
