Just can’t get away from it
Can’t reconcile
Can’t find peace
Can’t make any sense of it all
You’re giving me something…
I can’t seem to grasp
Can’t receive
Claim to have by belief
But these things still haunt me
I make a liar of You
Without trying to
Wriggling in discomfort
From what I am still chained to
Waiting for my tormentors
To re-enter that place and time
Appear unannounced…
Invade my thoughts
Permeate walls
I’m being pulled at
Ragamuffin red flagged dead center in a tug of war
Torn into quarters
By wild horses tethered to limbs
And the onset is so subtle
So seemingly innocuous
I’m in over my head
Before even knowing I’ve wet a toe
This is what I live with
Every single day
What I pray about
Try to let go of
I’d be a liar to say I’m free
I know what is chasing after me
I also know Who intervenes
That this struggle must play out to conclusion
That the outcome is not at all about me
And so I squirm in the wet earth
Rising to the surface
After a heavy rain
Because I must fight to Remain Vulnerable
submitted
helpless prey trusting
while ominous shadows of spread wings
circle menacingly breaking the stillness of breaking light
Hold fast…and pray
that come what may
may not come
but pass
Thy Will alone be done 
To be of any possible “good” use
available…
though not of much avail
by the limited measures available
This much is clear
when I feel furthest away
it only serves to confirm
what I must acknowledge subconsciously
in my heart of hearts
while fearful and trembling…
despite the self loathing I am prone to
that plagues me
  You have not hesitated, not even for a moment
 
though my wretchedness
be ever before me…
 
 You draw near
and through all these many words
all I think I know and have learned
there is still no means by which to avoid
whether it be joy or sadness
grief, loss, despair...
wherever, whenever, however, whatever my condition or circumstance
 You find me...
catch me off-guard every time
in a flood of grace and mystery
being renewed by fire
baptized in tears.
