Baptism and Emptiness

These feelings oppress
Even as they exalt me
Pride, humility

My dynamic will
An inclination to move
Bound and struggling

Duty and honor
They stretch me on the altar
Servant to ideals

The stone blade cuts deep
Frees me from my wounded heart
Cruel, unforgiving

Selfless diffusion
The holy ghost, washed in fire
The Shriven spirit

Overwhelmed and drained
A hunger for faith
Baptized and empty
