Redemption

redemption

I have felt the most ordinary moment

Suddenly swell and expand

With cosmic significance;

I sense that somehow

The whole balance of Fate

Can be swayed by

A casual choice…

I have seen a common man

Take on a halo of golden Light,

And with a single selfless act

Shake the Earth to its foundation!

Sometimes destiny comes to us

Disguised as routine;

Often we’re too busy to notice.

Every day,

In countless different ways

That seem so small and insignificant,

Life offers us the same old choice:

Fear or Love?

And in that moment of Truth

The gears of time grind to a halt,

And all the heavens watch

With bated breath;

As though the Gods themselves

Are somehow counting on us

For redemption…
