Showered

Beads of water,
Hidden within
The consistent viscosity
Of the stream of your love—
Bounce off the flesh
Of my fingertips, and
Wash through
The secular chains of my rugged disbelief,
To erode my doubt, and
Soften my defence,
Like the face of a rock cut,
Weathered over time.

Resuscitate me,
Breathe life into my
Impure heart and looted spirit.

I pray that I may
Transduce the signal
Of your salvation, and
Find the strength
To reject the fear
That rescinds my ability
To act in your image.
