brown and blue abstract painting

By Cris Burks

You seek to be profound,
so, you mock God
You take your mother’s beliefs
Light them
Burn the prayers she whispered over you
Burn the blessings
You mock the wisdom of your father
Twist it into metal absurdities
mutilate every righteous thought of you
You seek to be relevant,
so, you mock all that is Holy
You take the beauty of creation
and distort it
into
your words
your vision
your image of
despair.
