Word(s) of Life

Words of life

breathed precisely

into paragraphs,

sentences & phrases,

nouns, verbs

& prepositions,

yet how trivially

we use our speech,

chit-chat

and tit for tat,

the lingo of our daily

conversations

slathered with

gossip, slander, diatribe,

the lying expressions

of our finite minds

vocalizing the pretenses

of our actions,

yet we dare to question

the wisdom of holy writ,

in our sacrilegious culture,

we value our perspectives

over the validation

of the Divine, 

our wits over

what is written

our willful opinions

our human quarrels,

our self-promoting prattle

over the Word of Life.
