Your dark, gaping maw
That haunts my dreams,
They try to put you on charts,
The try to put you in chains,
Like Samsom, they send girls to seduce you,
Though it seems you yield a secret,
You blow us all to dust.
O dark giant,
I thank you
For the whirlpool, for the unknown depths.
You cut away the irreal, the immaterial
All those lies we tell ourselves
For the sake of human sense, conventional wisdom.
You have your honor, your pride
Your code is unwritten, and so often seems unjust
But in the face of your might, we tremble.
And those who surrender survive, with souls intact.
But those who struggle are cast asunder.
You embolden me to tear off my shackles
You yourself cut the ropes from my wrists
With you nothing is impossible
With you, all human kind is just a guess.
You are neither friend nor foe
But for those who forget to be mortal,
You cast their clay gods down.
The idols don’t stand for long-
every reason, every explanation
Is just a shot in your darkness.
Uncertainty, I thought you were a foe,
I thought you were chaos, a demon
But with God’s grace, you are the best of friends.
Reminding me I am free, and human,
And whole beyond my knowing.
