The Damascus Road

 

Paul, on his Damascus road, was shown

how all he knew he believed was wrong

his Messiah had come, had died, and lives

is the Word to which scripture's arrow flew

and believed, forsaking

tradition

oppression

inflexible dogma

to follow God

 

I have also walked the Damascus road

less profoundly changed, yet corrected

was shown the rich gardens in which I grew

owned but imperfect apprehensions of the Word

and believed, forsaking

catechisms

floral acronyms

inconstant doctrine

to follow God
