Ode of a mortal warrior

My curiosity asks
Questions mortals fear, for
Sorrows to disappear.
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

Against my flesh, my bone
Has led me into hell
Challenging immortals
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

Stretching arms to both ends
Breaking doors and drawing
Swords with the gods of war.
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

Wedging war against all;
The Angels and demons
Are both in alliance.
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did…

Pray for me, to endure
The chokes of my own dust
When the wind of pain blows…
Pray for me, I have done
An unspeakable thing
No mortal ever did.

    Very lovely poem. The repetition in the poem is very compelling. I think the last word of the first line should read ‘asks’ rather than ‘ask’

    I love the lines: “Pray for me, to endure the chokes of my own dust – when the wind of pain blows…” Amazing!

  5. Don’t worry. Jesus died for all our sins. All you need to do is repent and pray
