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




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
