River

Let the river of life flow
through my calloused hands

while my blood stained soul 
screams black

sinner?
saint?

my heart knows they 
are the same

but the latter is true

truer than the former

in Him alone…

crushing self
born in soil

raised in power and glory

who will save me 
from this body of death?

the One and Only
the pierced One

the Truth -
