SACRED SUSTENANCE


 


 


Prepare


Translucent children


Greet the rising sun of promise


Peeking playfully


From behind baronial skyscrapers


Take a giant leap from fantasy


Fools paradise


Welcome to the illusion of freedom


One can be homeless


In the lap of a million dollar home


This warped wicked world in which we dance


Insane insomnia


Predatory by nature


Indentured servitude


Survival of the groping blind


Forced are we


To hum along with the madness


Human basic needs


Must be maintained to a certain degree


The privileged


Far outnumbered by the bankrupt majority


Emancipation


Redemption


Thunders expeditiously


Draft of Angels wings


Our salvation draws nigh


Sauté it all down to simple béchamel:


 


FAITH


Belief in the unseen


God


Creator of heaven and earth


Requires much higher degrees of consciousness


Courage


Narrow path of persecution


So difficult to follow


In the blatant blitzkrieg of ignorance


 


 


“19 But mine enemies are lively, and they are strong: and they that hate me wrongfully are multiplied.”


“20 They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.”


Psalm 38: 19-20 (King James Version)


HOPE


Promise of eternal salvation


Peace


Serenity


We are never alone


Safe in the loving embrace of Christ


Key ingredient in this real world soup du jour


 


LOVE


“File”


Finishing touch of metamorphosis


Powerful anesthetic for the sting of misery


Binding gift


Borne on a bloody cross


Inherited gift of ultimate sacrifice


Fear not


Stand firm in the face of impiety


Behold


We feast on sacred sustenance


 


 


“31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added to you”


“32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom”


“33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth”


 


Luke 12:31-33 (King James Version)


 


 


Béchamel


N: milk thickened with a butter and flour roux [syn: white sauce, béchamel sauce]

File (FEE-lay) powder is used as a seasoning and thickener in some gumbos. It is made from dried leaves of sassafras trees, and is available at larger supermarkets or specialty stores.
