A Man! A Son of the King!

(Disclaimer: Even though the verbiage is explicitly masculine, the spirit and the underlying theology is androgynous)

Life moves
Through a heaviness
Sharp edges
All around

Can’t help
But move
Always forward
Always onward

Where’s Meaning?
Where’s Delight?
Distant Mirages
Rock underneath

Get cut
Bleeding
Get broken
Smashed

Heavy life
Edges, razor sharp
Rock is hard
Cob webs confuse

Take a punch
In the gut
Bear a bullet
In the chest

Oh, the meaning
Oh, the delight
Of being a man
With a spine 

Back up, Standing
With the King’s Spirit
Brave and Strong – A man!
A son of the King!
