Whereunto shall I go, that I may once again escape the agony of pain?

For determination has hereunto begat this journey of mindless desolation.


 The Field Of Yesterday’s Communion


 I lay prostrate and forlorn in the field of yesterday’s communion.

 I marvel not of the atrocities that peel across an immense and bruised sky.

Solace of comfort comes not as I wait in patience for that promised reunion.

And it is unto this in which I have come, and still, oh still, I know not why.

For it is through these pursed lips that I whisper loudly at nothing,

Yet still, it is the silent nothing that befalls me.

 For I… from aside this shallow penitence find so little in which to say.

It is as if the consummation of mayhem has ripped to shreds my clinging hope.

Thus, I marvel not… as the field of yesterday’s communion

Reclaims another lost and weary soul.

Your voice is quiet but your words are loud and clear. Your poetry speaks for so many of us.

It is a quiet homecoming for me here. You've made me welcome...just like a true southern

We must cling on to the certainty that the Son of God will soon be returning, to seperate the wheat from the chaff, and the sheep from the he goats !
Have no fear are definitely amongst the wheat !
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton (Reader) 2/25/2006
Inner turmoil is the cause and effect of many days like you write about. "Yesterday's communion" can be a metaphor for yesterday's sins. Still, today is whhat is important, communion today need not have a voice stilled, only one that speaks truth.

Powerfully penned, J. Allen, and a powerfully sad piece.
