HIDDEN IN PERSPECTIVE
(10/19/18)


like a
horizon-bound
singularity

forever obscured
by our black hole
physics

we cloud
God
within the
gravity
of religion

our belief
system
prohibiting
a naked divinity

dogma
obfuscating
the congregation's
chances

in verse

in hymn

in glitter

in guilt

of any true
salvation

too many
human barriers
placed between
ourselves

and our
deliverance

that we
do not feel
a part
of the integral
workings
of the cosmos

when we
are just
as integral
as the
stars

the planets

the waves
that bend
light

time

already
holy
by nature

we need
no good
words
of validation

of encouragement

of discipline

we simply
need
to be

to accept
the grace
of our
existence

with each
and every
breath

infinite

sublime
