An Alternate Reality

Archive for February, 2016

Ash Wednesday

Burn down this heavy body
Burn down this restless mind
Burn down this angry frustration
and rise again from ashes.

Burn down this need to control
Burn down this pointless anxiety
Burn down this flagging spirit
and rise again from ashes.

There is a gold coin somewhere
in the remains, a silver necklace,
a diamond ring.

Wash me in waters of gratitude
Cleanse me in rivers of joy
Bathe me in the light of forgiveness
and let me rise again from ashes.
