The Damned

Sheath
Your
Limbs,
And
Gird
Your
img_0744_go_tell_the_saprtans_400Loins,
Make
Ready
Your
Cleaving
Greaves.

The
Battle
Trumpet
Harkens;
For
The
Battle
Has
Begun,
The
Inner
Battle
For
Our
Soul.

Hosts
Of
Angels
Pour
From
Cracked
Heavens.

Onto
Dusty
Desert
Plains.

Among
The
Banshees
And
The
Damned;
Grey
Coiled
Gargoyles
Of
This
Land;
This
Hollow
Land
Of
Unbelief.

Sound
The
Trumpet,
Sound
The
Charge,
Away
From
Charon's
Floating
Barge.

Onto
The
Land,
And
In
The
Sea;
The
Mighty
Captain,
Of
Our
Soul.

The
Day
Of
Battle;
Lost
And
Won.

Our
New
Relief;
Our
New
Belief.

Indeed, the battle and the journey are inner, those of the Self and as Augustine and Dante found out it requires more than confession of one's inner struggles, it requires acknowledgment by the Self of one's responsibility for the road taken or not taken, regret, repentance and a turn around, and most important of all the asking for mercy and forgiveness; things that seem to have been forgotten in our narcissistic ego maniacal de-humanized era; what Kierkegaard calls "the sickness unto death" occurring when one is afflicted by a fatal spiritual disease of which one is not even aware.
