My Chosen One *
I strive to retain biblical consciousness;
Read testaments from ancient witnesses.
Logos exhorts and chastises,
Confounds, astounds, and advises
This soul, mixed with greatness and wretchedness.
I, imago Dei, breath in every page—
Shepherd’s awe, Magi’s quest, and Herod’s rage . . .
All due to a new-born king’s birth,
Who chose to die and rise from earth.
Advent candles illume in this dark age.
