Sightless Substance

Ghosts with no substance flit across my mind,
Jiggle they the knob, keys seek they to find.
They with no substance, spirits that are no more,

Upon my entrenched soul and my tower keep.
Oh immortal with a mortal’s bound soul,
Emptiness within, its fullness does know.

My day fades away in the timeless land.
Give me this day Your daily bread,
So that I may not sojourn in the
land of the dead.
Let me not grasp an empty hand,
But let us walk forth, God and man.”

service out of overflowing joy and compassion.”
