Breaking the Fast

Breaking the Fast

I wait past hunger

to a knowledge of who I am:

a ravenous being, insatiable,

self-indulgent.

 

I wait past pain

the angry growling of a

hollow interior, ignored.

 

I wait past denial

into acceptance, into repentance

into knowledge of  forgiveness.

 

I wait until I am fed

by the spiritual hand of God.

 

I break fast with unleavened bread

and water turned to wine,

the sustenance of faith.

One response to “Breaking the Fast

  1. Amen and amen. I am humbled before your single minded desire for more of Him. Beautiful poetic record of it all.
