THE MARRIAGE COVENANT WITH GOD
The animal that we’re here to split in two–
it must be me, and it might be you.
And by this, I mean our mind and our sex:
when we give them to God, then it’s us He elects!
If we make our “own mind” more important than Him,
old age will set in and our minds will grow dim.
If we make our body, our pleasure, our gender
the focus of life, it’s our own death we render.
Between the genitals and the head is the ephemeral heart:
it’s the path in the middle–it’s the covenant part.
That is “the Way” we take Home, to God and our Soul,
like the Prodigal Son, to bring back what we stole.
Minds only make contracts, and contracts don’t last.
Lust says, “I’m love” but it’s a shadow that’s cast.
But the heart is where all of us can soften until
God’s word can be planted: just ASK and BE STILL!
Parables were meant to shake us out of our head
to go to the heart of the matter instead.
The compassion Christ felt, despite having no “mate,”
was to show us that lust comes of envy and hate.
Who can hear, God showed us how to offer our “meat”
to be cut in two pieces, yet trust we’re complete:
and it shows we are “willing” to walk in between
these gifts that God gave us, where God can be seen.
