to be at the pinnacle's peak –no more bars to cross not one prayer to say even here is the world swirling chaotic around me and i am breathing the confusion settled around my neck to ruin a place –patch it back, and to preach the gospel of the kingdom cum to gaping holes forgive me lord if i am found catching stars with my teeth when you finally come to kiss me i cannot be my own affliction for a second time i cannot afford regret but what if i'm part of these ruins you made would you pull me in or out will you make excuses for my excesses or hate me for wearing s t a r s on my fingers? dear god of my mother's heart come kiss me please
