psalm 14: some questions for the faithful


i’m so tired tired of loving you
like a scared and lonely child, so
desperate to behave,
to follow the rules,
to say the right words, to
think proper thoughts.

so i can’t help but ask:
is it better to surrender or to obey?
to fear or to be afraid?
to serve or to live in servitude?

should i try to believe in you
or accept that you are
existence itself?

    This reads like a koan, except that the answers are obvious.
