Baptism and Emptiness

These feelings oppress

Even as they exalt me

Pride, humility

 

My dynamic will

An inclination to move

Bound and struggling

 

Duty and honor

They stretch me on the altar

Servant to ideals

 

The stone blade cuts deep

Frees me from my wounded heart

Cruel, unforgiving

 

Selfless diffusion

The holy ghost, washed in fire

The Shriven spirit

 

Overwhelmed and drained

A hunger for faith

Baptized and empty
