“By your endurance you will gain your souls.” – Luke 21:19

Lord of the Race,
Keeper of Time,
who, breathing, breathlessly 
holds all Creation together;
we gasp for breath
having only taken
a few small steps to keep up
with our neighbor's neighbor;
fearing for our trammeled souls
molded by beaten paths,
we seek not only a way
but the gumption
to get on with it
so as to endure.
