The Test

 

yet an other opportunity

thrown aside

disgust at my failure

at my ability to “follow orders”

I am no better than Hitlers pawns

casting my responsibility aside

allowing it rest on the shoulders of others

 

boomeranging

 

it cannot be avoided

but comes back to haunt

once the decisions been made

in fear of the outcome

I abdicated

and now its throne is occupied

by an other

 

woe is me

 

who longing faithfulness to death

fails under smaller tests

 

dear God

I am unworthy you

please move my soul to greater effort

with You as my only goal
