The Scenic Route


It seems so long ago

it was family

and kingdom

and God

to which we gave our lives.


Now we live for heart.


It sounds so nice: ‘the heart’.


But many things can sound

so nice.


In any case,

the heart of which we speak


be seen. Much like God.


And yet the heart is what I walk with.

I haven’t God,

I’ve only heart

—my only sword and shield

on a road our generation took

of buried god

and awkward heart.  


So what to do but hope

it’s just the scenic route

to a better grasp

of both.
