Awake in a land of sleepers

When we find ourselves awake
in a land of sleepers,
the rebels are brought to drugs,
the sensitive to despair,
the comics to cynicism,
and the ordinary to insanity.
But the bold in God
are brought to life.

Feet in the Kingdom

Many walk with both feet in the world
and they think their life of misery
is a life to celebrate

Some see their misery
and put their first foot in the kingdom
and they think their straddling of two worlds
is the natural one this side of heaven

Few cling to Christ
crying for his divine arm
to draw their second foot into the kingdom
so they may join the prophets
and walk with God
