woman of god

braising thoughts arose as my lifeless 
body huddled in a fetal position i' d completed 
thirty hail mary's an yet my macerated flesh 
lay still as the sun began
to settle embedding itself almost oh how vain i was 
thinking merely of beauty 
my beauty taken in an instant on impact 
how selfish i was addressing the father how dare you 
why this isn't living an yet you promised
i shall die and live i doted on you believing every word 
like a faithful child twitching kicking the paramedics
oh what a bad patient scolding the rescue workers 
for saving my retched life
do they not see the father in view are they blinded 
by the light the sullen hue 
that consumed my being torn flesh from my face 
ah in my lowliness my wisdom edified 
as st anthony strolls by in a distant glare mending me 
this sereme endeavor captured 
my solace for peace although there was no peace 
in my living i'd wandered deeply from earthly realms 
a gentle peace in my dying bestowed me 
i glanced at the road that swallowed me whole
leaving no sign of life it was then st theresa whispered 
you are his child quickly i responded 
oh no ma'am i'm not with child thinking only of my figure 
she smiled a warm glow and whispered yet again
you are his child she gestured to another woman 
st cicelia quite childlike to my eyes 
she chanted you are woman you are child 
do you understand i responded amidst my sufferage
for the sake of his sorrowful passion  
i over stand his divine mercy
