MISBELIEVED BLASPHEMIES
(1/7/2016)


what?

what
did we think
we could
say?

what
did we think
we could
yell?

to truly
offend
The Almighty?

nothing

our petty
little
pronouncements

our big
fucking
mouths

nothing

God speaks

worlds
are created

we
are created

our most
profane screams
are but
impotent whispers
muted absolutely
by a divine
wind

nothing

our lives
are the only
offenses

wasted
blessings

we must
live
better voices

act
better words

pray
with our lips
pressed
closed
