Intentions

I’m not being disingenuous
when I say I want to soak up the love
of Our Lord God Almighty The Father
The Son Jesus Christ
to be washed in the blood of the lamb
to be re-Baptized.

It is not dishonesty that leads me
to crack open that Holy Book
again for the first time
in longer than I can remember.

I am too accustomed
to ulterior motives and pain and misery
to sow more of that upon others.

I want what we all want–
a time of peace–
but my head and my soul are at war.

I want to soak up
information and knowledge
and quench my thirst.

I want to change
who I have come to be.

I’m doing this for me.
