Douglas Polk- Two Poems


Christianity not to be written into some book of laws,
with pencil or pen,
but written instead on the hearts of men,
and women,
no punishments to avoid,
but instead love to attain,
and then spread.

A Statement of Faith

the time not our own,
life shared with multitudes of creatures,
trapped in space and time,
captive instead of free,
because we refuse to listen,
we refuse to see,
the things not visible,
or easy to believe,
be still,
make no demands,
but offer a prayer,
feel the love,
there is nothing to fear,
our debt already paid,
free to be,
and to love,
if our minds unchained,
our life free,
with meaning,
no answers needed.
