We live with the mediocre in our lives, afraid
of being killed or of being left behind, unable
to define the far off poles between which
the conventional stands in the middle.
We ask for no great shakes, determined to seek
the easiness we believe was promised to us
long ago by those who walked long distances
with a practiced pace and on calloused feet.
Salvation should, the story begins, be easy, with
no hindrance in our seeking for definitions
of the God who seeks and waits as we actively
search for the desire that will deliver us.
