    For Heaven's Sake

    In darkness

    Did I wander far

    On foot

    Trains and planes

    And in my car

    To places seekers often go

    To learn

    To burn

    To truly know

    Why God did make and place us here

    And why we had to shed each tear

    And chrysalis

    That would not cling

    To what makes chosen spirits king

    The part of us we cannot fake

    Ignore or shake

    For heaven's sake

     

    John Christopher
