In God We Trust

I’ve been digging through past lives for
months, searching
for fingerprints
in five feet, eleven inches of

deceit dust covering everything
I know! How many times did he shed his skin
back here?  Dead parasites are proof!

He was on the roof when it caved.
Climbed  over four hundred days
with water and
a bible.

He left spoons and mattress burns below him,
tribe familiars blossomed following his climb,
extending gratitude,
tribute!

And he climbed, praising God, until he reached
Grace,
humble resiliency…

We sang!
We cried and we sang!
We wrapped our hugs in packages with golden bows,
throwing them to a skeptical world! We danced, twirled
through moon phases, a
fantastic celebration!

Then, a sharp raucous!
Brusque thunder crushing eardrums!

Blood poured from our ears
as the noise devastated. Bible pages
fell like confetti over
our joy; a tearful,
thick pollution!

We cried!
We fell and we cried!
We wrapped our memories in boxes with golden locks,
sealing them, our treasures. Silently, we
remembered, our Requiem,
a tribute!

All we know is that he climbed,

and that underneath five feet, eleven
inches of his dust, it is

in God that we place our
rusted
trust.

  1. To me my WordPress family is my “Special Family.” We do not know each other in a personal one-to-one relationship, yet thru the WordPress family we share our deepest emotions. All my internet social contact is through the WordPress. I do not do Facebook and the other networks. I wish to share a thought with you. The thought carried me thru many horrible times in my own life. Many of times are also related in my own poetry, as it is with yours. There is a light ahead. No it is not a train! It is peace, love and happiness ahead. “Let Go and Let God take control of your Life.” I did….it worked for me.
