earth shake
earth shudder
earth quake

Lord says
why have you forsaken me
why have you killed your brother
your sister, wife, neighbour

did I not tell you sin would be crouching
at your door
at your door

sin at your door
at your door
waiting, grinning, smirking

hands submerged in play
in miry clay
wanting to play God
but the breath of life is not in me

it is not in me
hands submerged in play
miry clay
shaping, shifting nothing
for i am nothing

i fall asleep
i close my eyes
and when i wake up

life turns to dust in my hands
but God can breathe life into dust
He can heal
He is Almighty

there are but two roads to awe
one death
the other humility
