My Chant and the World

I have led the tunnels
Depth of shadows
The shivers of dread
I can reach the lights and zenith

I have lost you
The things I did wrong
And those I failed to do
I will find love aright

I have found difference
In both the locus – 
And its spatial might
I know the way of bridges

I am now so naked
Temptations and broken will
All have indeed sinned
I – by God – will make saint

Our sun is hotter
The ice melting, oceans rising
The earth is ill, her healing
In changing the world!
