Douglas Polk- Two Poems

In the Wilderness

final prayers said,
among the mountainous wilderness,
they wait to die,
or deny the faith,
the only two options,
Jesus tempted in the wilderness,
Satan alive,
even back then,
darkness and despair,
naked in the wilderness,
Christians pray,
wrapped in Angel's wings,
the world seemingly helpless,
tweets apologies and prayers,
unheard in the wilderness.

God pondered,
few the reasons to believe,
yet faith one of the few things truly possessed,
not a command,
or fear of condemnation,
only an invitation accepted.
