Have I always been so lost

Have I always been so lost?

It seems that in this moment that I reflect back

I know I’ve forgotten something:

Because all my desert memories

Have become their own oasis

The salt that once was tasteless

Now is savory

The bitterest of moments

Now taste sweet of thought

And the ones that I once fought

Seemed to never be

O judicial slavery

Always be held by such a nature

An obstinate and simple creature

Bound in wavering

My internal liturgy

Clasped liked skin to body

And what nobody’s taught me

You’ve mentored by Your grace

The light alludes

My shadow again

And still the outline is cast

Nothing can keep

Out the dark

Hidden in the past

But looking back

Where shadow’s at

Only light remains

It seems shadows

Only results

If light overwhelms the space
