    Another Day, Pre-Paradise



    Morning, broken loose,
    with hell astride.

    And I?

    I could have cried
    but for the
    faith
    that led me loudly.

    Noncomply
    with satan's wiles.

    Christ, alone,
    directs my heart.

    The Cathars
    Confirmed
    Their Faith
    In the Belief
    Evil was
    In play
    And
    It was
    The Devil
    Ruled the Earth

      "Christ, alone, directs my heart."

      Regardless of personal religious beliefs, I prefer an element of uncertainty. It allows for the concepts of self-determination, responsibility and redemption.

      If you've never read Barabbas by Par Lagerkvist or Seven Storey Mountain by Thomas Merton, you might find them interesting.

        I had a copy of Seven Storey Mountain and started (but do not recall if I finished) it about three decades ago. We've moved a good number of times since and it may no longer remain on my bookshelf. I've not heard of the other one...will check it out. T!hanks.

        And thanks for the "like" to both you and DepressingPoem! And thanks to Johntee for read and comment.

        It's a good day when I make it to the zone and have a chance to interact here with other writers!
