The Last Lost Soul



from the hero’s journey.

Let salvation

be realized,

not through torment

after torment,

but through divine


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.



HG – 2022
