I believe in the sacrad world of science,

Until I drifted away

the sacred world of science
became harder to change minds

It all started in the hospitals

I moved on to
The Miracles

It was miraculous

I got everything
I asked for
Seven cars
Six houses
Five mistresses

until I did not want it anymore

And God chuckled

Rabbit, thank you for your entry. anna, if the one you submitted for Tallen's comp is new it more than qualifies for this thread too. As long as the poem was written after this comp was started, I really don't care where else it's posted. Lots of members enter multiple comps with the same entry. It's no biggie to me.

Shore up a crumbing wall

My faith, the gap, is simple, not decadent
I cast a line with hook and weight
false idols bright, I view so hesitant
my line was slack and never taught

I heard the want, of natures chant
it hummed discord
 grumbled disgust, with needs and wants
never, bow on knee with a murmuring hoard

Not the edifice, imposing grand facade
a lightening flash, the thunder answer back
200 pipe organ, playing Bach
the angry storm with winds that lash

For Gaia's need, to kiss the earth
mankind so deaf to her beseech
ever grey, the dawn be overcast
and prayer will never fill the breach

 Plastic idols with us for Millennia
convenience, the offerings, betray each church
my testament, to see the forest's green agenda
plasters, on all natures hurt

Not frogmarched by consumerisms stigma
our living planet, heed its mater
preach to me no frigid dogma
 but love, that has the power to alter

Not those dry and dusty scripts
nature, be my buttresses of influence
not steal the lead from each domesticity
nor fairy tales, but belief in common sense

Wear a Joseph's coat
A belief to preserve just what we have
my own colour, faith, a need invoked
repair all, that's been raped and stabbed

The cross to fill a gaping †hole
I sing hymns that only earth can hear
boulders form from my resolve
build a base without compare

me myself and i

 
in truth
all my worship  
is in service of †

self improvement †
self worth †
self awareness †
self respect †
self control †

and if that self same  
is found in the gods  
in the sky  
land
or sea

if it is found at 3am †
heartbroken †
heart racing  
in the lyrics †
of an algorithmic auto play  
or the other side of the day  
in the yellow sun  
on fire  

or in sleep †
where i skinwalk †

in sex  
where i †

love  


then  

thatíll do
