Altar


(after reading through exodus til deuteronomy, we realize, God is worthy of all the sacrifices and single-hearted worship)

it seems so trivial, insignificant
it is nothing compared to what your martyrs endured
but it was torn from the pump beneath my chest
the very place where my treasures reside

it looks like nothing
but its stripping pains like it’s the only good thing
being taken away

has it kept me alive?
but you are the air. the only breathe i need to live
has it made me smile?
but even smiles i can forgo as you collect my tears

you are laughter yet unwrapped, unheard
waiting at a distance as near as where your Spirit is
if i could dive into your heart
i would surrender
my life
to die one more time
if only to wake up in your embrace
