There is a kind of knowing, bred in bone and marrow
Which seeks no strident syllogism to justify itself
The Imago Dei, I am, mirror to the Great I Am,
Purchase for perception, the pursuit of reflection
A divinely directed trajectory
With crystalline clarity, illuminating the Mind of God

There is a kind of thinking that would throttle its own birthing
Planting its feet on the quicksoil of epistemic rejection
Meandering, it circles the same mountain,
Railing and cursing the smoking Glory of revelation
Rattling its chains, enslaved in self liberation
For its feet, no fulcrum,
Levitating without leverage
Free floating, anchorless, adrift in the air,
It has no place to go, and no way home
Its end is found in its beginning
Stillborn and hard to bear

There is a kind of thinking that rejoices boldly in a great adventuring
On the very Breath of Life it is lifted up
It soars in cerulean solitude
Above the vernal earth
Overseeing the expanse with unblemished eyes
It rises from one weight of glory to another,
And leaves its home only to find its home
Its end is found in its beginning
And worship is its name
