now that all my motives are proved corrupt;
and all my reasons for seeking You
only self-seeking in disguise;
what meaning has “Love” for me now?
last resort of incapacity?
desperation out of destitution?
trying to follow Your path
only because nothing else in creation
makes any sense………….
what manner of passion is this?
You alone are the incomparable
and unutterable answer to this
or any other question.
