“How is it that you have contrived this deed in your heart?” – Acts 5:4

Giver of all blessed thoughts
both helpful and cursed,
our cravings eat us up;
feed us a new way; for
in our emptiness we acquire
what is not our own and
hold it close to what we think
is our heart; and the pounding
we feel is not the beat of life
but the sound of our own steps
running away from our chance 
to become holy.
Amen.
