Shooting Arrow

A shooting arrow I see
as I walk closer to thee;
penetrating to me
as this divine thing is getting closer to the sea.

How could this be?
As I open the waves -
the sky is shooting at me
as if heaven was mad at me!!

How can I please?
the desire of the shooter -
that once was betrayed with a kiss.

I open His word,
and instantly it penetrates my heart
like a combat-sword;
like a shooting-star;
like a fatal-dart.

This is a...
Radical change of an Eagle.
Disappearing the darkness, the selfishness, the pride,
and the ego.

Every single time I
open the wave of life;
the ocean drowns me
giving me a new way of life -
at the same time it's opening my eyes
while I...
stare at the shooting arrows descending from the sky.
Landing and trespassing my feet, 
my hands, my ribs, and my mind -
crucifying my-self 
as the Jews did to Christ.

The Gospel is like a shooting arrow that penetrates all hearts.
(This poem was inspire by the passion that Sunshine (Nicole) has for the Gospel)

    A beautiful dedication in submission to the ocean(Word) of life's truth Diogenes. It is a process symbolizing the natural crucifying of Christ itself. Not all of humanity will subject themselves to this crucifixion. But the ones that do are doing so for all humanity, and they will reap great reward in heaven. Smile, Sincerely, Moses
