Surrender

whiteflag

A sing-along Sunday in

the arms of America

taking scraps from our plates

you know our people love

their peaceful kinds of hate

a pillar of faith will guide you

surrender lays paramount

so walk behind spirits true

Mystic steps in closed shroud

a ship upon the sea

far away and oh so close

my father stands with me

color stained fingers shaking

mandala visions unfold

serenity there for the taking

shelter from the cold

I need a piece of the puzzle

a solution for that which is me

Counting the time wasted

giving it all away for free

I beg of you to follow

fill that which has been hollow

speak a tear-stained sunlit sermon

please

and help me up off of my knees
