The Last Lost Soul

  

Abstain

from the hero’s journey.

Let salvation

be realized,

not through torment

after torment,

but through divine

forgiveness.

Sitting up in the clouds,

an old soul

on a holy mountain.

Will you find yourself

a fine judge of sin?

Connoisseur of hedonisms,

let the levee break

to drown your sorrows.

Cultivate an inner mediator

to police

your war

with God.

Was there ever a doubt

that you

would draw straws

with all your lesser demons?

Fade underway,

the last lost soul,

above the acrimony.

There is still

time to choose

to walk away.
