Altar

Over and over
I drag it up
and lay it down
only to pick it up again,
and here I am,
ashamed,
hooked in,
co-dependant.

Laying my Isaac down
sounds so noble
honourable,
but with coals glowing hot
on the altar,
my greedy fingers reach out
to snatch back
the sacrifice.

I convince myself of
another way,
with another lamb,
'cause this one is virtually unblemished
and strangely precious.
Somehow larger than life.

And although I know a
higher
holier way
waits on the other side of the flames,
I choose to
trade redemption
for burnít fingers
and slightly charred
remains.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Totally incredible - I favor unrhyming (prosaic?) poetry. Very well put - graphic images and my blistered fingers can relate oh, so well.
