Die to Live

sometimes I feel
as under heel
the lie is real
no even keel

oncoming tide

a heart ideal
turned hardened steel
duplicitous zeal
found its appeal


for time’s anneal
must come ordeal
the grinding wheel
veneer to peel


inside’s the deal
we’ll have to seal
no more conceal
thy heart reveal

nowhere to hide

a wound to heal
past debt repeal
and peace to feel
sincere? then kneel

where once you lied

from Divine creel
now as puerile
the promise real
come bless-ed meal
