Surrender

Surrender all I have of me

Or rise above his head, but alone

Surrender the dignity that defines and defies

Or rise above, potentially decapitated

But shining alight in the glory of rebuke

Surrender the shining armor of my will

Or rise above his evil empire, possibly on fire

Surrender the sword I wield, the passion I feel

Or rise above his throne, overthrown and nude

Surrender the immeasurable beauty of belief

Or rise above his own, possibly beguiled

By a freedom that I knew only as an insider

Dying for a taste of your outside

Surrender the shield I hold firm to

Or shield myself from ever finding the light

Surrender the beating and breathing

Or risk bleeding forever under his knife

Surrender the eternal everything

Or risk living the temporal nothing

One thought on “Surrender
