noise

Posted: March 11, 2013 in Uncategorized

creatures filled with faithless noise
we fuss and squirm while we wait
forgetting that Your view sees far and much

our prayers to You are filled with doubt
we issue You orders
i need a sign or a map
i have a list and a timeline

if You don’t do what i ask
will You no longer be trustworthy?

that tyrant imposter, urgency
puffs itself up
between us and You
we lose perspective
we lose our minds
we lose our cool
we bow down before that little god
wearing its chains and calling them Common Sense
we bawl and squall at You
as if our believing lies
makes them into truth

little wonder that You wept
immeasurable mystery, Your compassion
in the face of our
faithless noise
