god save me

[probably unfinished, so I'll probably regret posting it. whatever.]

I would rather it otherwise, God,
but I don’t think you deliberately chose the cross.
I think you simply chose love
at every available moment
even though it led
inevitably
to death.

I would rather it otherwise,
because it means faith
is me
making the choice
to say yes, still,
to love.

And while I pray,
God save me
from the life of faith
which will cost me everything,
I fear God already has
by making me live it.
