We neither deserved deliverance,
Nor strictly grace postulate.
Is this an irreconcilable difference,
Or are we just obstinate?
Authority issues on both sides,
Waiting for humility from each other,
We use what unites to divide.
We use our freedom to smother.
I know from personal history,
It’s better to humble yourself,
Than be humbled. The mystery
Pursues long term health.
Short term thoughts chew,
And I have had this meal before.
It doesn’t taste like truth.
We must be meant for more.
So the truth is we are brothers,
And even fighting, still we share
In something far beyond us,
And undeserved: co-heirs.
