The Poet

Awaken the poet in me
so I can see through the veil
into the Holy of Holies.

Awaken the prophet in me
so I can be the fountain
spewing eternal waters.

Awaken the priest in me
so I can stand at the altar
offering the blood sacrifice

Awaken the warrior in me
with the shield of faith
and the sword of truth
cleaving marrow from bone

Awaken the worship in me
to break alabaster
and squander perfume
on the head of the wandering Jew.
