Poverty Of Spirit
(3/5/2021)


Brother Bollocks
misunderstood
being spiritually
poor
for most
of his life

he had
thought it
a bad thing

a weakness
of sort

gradually
he began
to see the condition
as a continual
seeking

looking
for God
in every moment
to satisfy
his spiritual
void

a void
continuously
created
by his worldly
associations

now
Brother Bollocks
is grateful
for his feeling
of perpetual
need

a deficiency
that keeps
him alert

his soul
forever
searching

for the next
glimpse
of divine
light

in minute
by minute
salvation
