It’s not plain sailing
being the gate
the door so people
can see the Promised one is on his way.
It’s going to have times when
the truth is castaway
as people sit on the islands of their
history unable to see the raft he brings
And sometimes when the truth is clearer than day
there are those who throw water on the lamp’s flame
thinking they can make it go out.
They claim he is mad
deranged, traitor – words to those that know him well
cut deep like wounds
when they know he is Divine
All he brings is a way to make us castaway
earthly desire, prejudice and hate
to see more purely our own destiny and light
our soul’s flame.
