Not As I will

A drop in the ocean,
a light beam of the sun,
self-centered thought counts not,
but Consciousness is One.

He spoke hard words,
exposing evil, dethroning self,
he was a stranger among his own,
misjudged, condemned, yet
loved he to the end.

So let ego be dethroned,
Lord, speak the Word,
cut deep and wound
the callous places of the heart,
that Your light may pierce the dark,
and human will, before Your gaze,
as no thing, melt, depart.
