The Gospel of Self

He has invited us to come and let our broken selves die. 

We have chosen to nurse the monsters within us.

He asked us to give up our lives

We feel obliged to submit to no one.

He has shown us that we need saving

We have decided to try save ourselves. 

The Gospel of Self 

Needs no God

For somehow amidst our deep folly

Lies a solution for all the misery 

Our folly has caused? 

How can it be that we are 

Sinner and priest

Patient and doctor

Man and god

All all at once?
