PSEUDO SAINT
(8/12/18)

you
see me
as a failure

or at least
as a failure
of potential
on some
convuluted
social
scale

admittedly
I'm toward
the bottom
of that

metaphysically
however
I reach
the firmament
at times

so close
to The Divine
that I feel
almost holy

possibly
almost wholly
insane

but still

striving
to be close
to God
seems the only
true vocation
for any of us

if I fail
I fail upon
the right
path

my corpse
a signpost
for others
