Saving Grace


Unmerited forgiveness is what I received
From my Savior whose body was pierced
For my transgression, he was slain
His pain became my gain

My riches and treasures
They give me no pleasure
In a world that offers only tears

One day, my knee will bow
To his conspicuous love
One day my tongue will sing
Of his amazing grace
One day my feet will tread
Those precious paths of gold

One day, when he wipes my tears
Extinct would be my fears
When I see the lamb of God
Magnificently adorned
seated on the heavenly throne

– A poem of hope based on the book of Revelation 21
– Written by Maria Joseph

unfettered


The septum of my heart, broken
diffusing red with the occult
weak, listless, untenable
wayfarer, languid and lost

Horns for a crown
cerebrum on fire
phallic lust
eyes wide open

wartorn, savage lands
landscape of my heart
weary from trials
assailed by demons

soul lamenting, spirit torn
estranged, wrenched, emasculated
blood red skies
reigning on me

hallowed grounds
oblation for guilt
my weakness, his strength
new wine for old blood
