CRUCIFIX SHADOW
(11/11/16)

the church
is losing
touch

they
confuse us
with their barrier
of morals

of decorum

seeming
to block
our access
to the divine
by design

they want
to hang on
to their power

to their
purpose

they confuse
scripture
with a modern
mandate

they are
just people
in a building

no nearer

no farther

from God
than we

they cannot
save
our souls

we must learn
to do our own
spiritual legwork
for a change

walking
a higher path
instead
of being
walked upon
