True Love

to pray for the Last Day just to see His face
to beg for Paradise only to bow at His feet

Have you felt it?

The joy, yet misery
of love that consumes
and yearning that devours
and despair that destroys

Have you known it?

You speak of love
yet you give preference
to the selfish dictates
of your avaricious soul

You speak of faith
yet you engross yourself
in fears of tomorrow
and concerns of yesterday

You speak of mercy
yet you'e done nothing 
to earn that gift
or any other

You speak of forgiveness
yet you've never repented
until you wished to tear
out your own eyes 
to stop the tears

You claim to know Him
How can you? 
when you know not yourself?
