Confess…. [poem]

Confess…

Shall we confess Lord?
To whom shall we confess?
Do we confess to men? To our wives, our husbands,our brothers or sisters?
…our clerics, our friends, our foes?
Do we confess (to) the wood and the nails and the blood?
Do we confess to the unknown, unseen in the sky?
Where shall I confess, Lord?
In a wooden box or a fiery pit?
In the open air or a darkened room?
In the cloud of my mind or the openness of my heart?
How do we confess Lord? Teach me to confess as Jesus taught the twelve how to pray!
Do we confess on bended knee or bended heart?
Do we confess to the ground or to the clouds?
Do we confess our demons to the angels or find the angels in our demons?
Do we confess with tears, or words, or pain, or song, or …
Do we confess in anger in love in hatred in love in disgust in love in love in love.
Why confess?
Are we guilty? Do you judge? Are you merciful?
Are we caught? Are we judged? Are we jailed already?
Is it duty, is it obligation?
Shall we confess first to ourselves before you?
Shall we confront the fear that leads us to fear you?
What shall we confess Lord?
Shall we confess the wrongs? What wrongs?
Did your commandments we violate, the twelve laws we broke into an infinity of little bits of sin?
Did we covet your power, steal your glory, rape your beauty, slander your name?
Did we, do we believe the snake of lies?
What shall we confess Lord?
Shall we confess the sin or the solution?
Shall we confess the blood or the light?
Shall we confess the demons or the angels?
Shall we confess the dark or the light?
Shall we confess the sin or the solution?

Let us confess…
To one another…
And to each other, let us confess,
Jesus is Lord.
