Exalt The Morning!: A Poem by Shotgun

sunrise

 

From whence I come, I know not where,

 

confusion in my exasperation.

 

Calling out to God, “Are you there?”

 

Sunlight brings me exaltation.

 

But is this just confusing banter?

 

The ebb and flow of chemical relation,

 

My brain to cease from thinking candor?

 

Sunlight brings me exaltation.

 

For know I well the things that haunt me,

 

Wake me in the mid of night,

 

Casting their tall eyes about me,

 

I shiver from their horrid sight!

 

Just when sleep regains its place,

 

And dreams once more return,

 

Once again, I am haunted,

 

Conscience seared and freshly burned.

 

My sins attempt to overwhelm me, (I am undone!)

 

In the darkest part of the morning, (demons run!)

 

Its then my nightstand yields a treasure, (Byzantium?)

 

Dust falls from a precious warning! (Oh the victory is won!)

 

I raise my sword aloft and measure, (the time is almost come!)

 

Victory, oh Victory in Jesus! (The Sunlight brings me exaltation!)
