breath of life
Poetry By Anthony James

There, born a soul
 
Carefully contained, inferno
 
Crashing into walls of infinity
 
Like an aimless, feral breeze
 
Very tough to get back if it gets away-
 
The signs are present
 
The soul is almost torn-
 
Catch it quick,
 
My God- to the flesh be born
 
Contained in skin and bone
 
Full of sin in the sinner's home
 
Earth-
 
 
Now, there you go
 
Go and become a man
 
This place is not what you think it is
 
But think of it as you choose-
 
Either way- you and sin are slowly closing in
 
And you, man, will certainly know
 
The kind you are-
 
The wild sinner, the conceited star
 
The disappointed soul, falling, tripping
 
Over the spiritual cord
 
To bring you down where you belong
 
 
Down, down to the dirt of ground
 
It is better to be under God's spell
 
And suffer to change, by the chains of Salvation-
 
Than to love the world and gain nothing
 
The cord, connecting you to Him
 
Of whom you were Born-
 
Of whom Loves you-
 
Forgiver of a billion sins or more
 
Power, such power.. in the Heart of He
 
Of whom created everything an eye can see-
 
And open the eyes of souls, beseech
 
Their limit reached-
 
Their cries are heard
 
Hungry children, call abba
 
Behold a white dove descends
 
Pouring out His Spirit
 
His Children are born again
 
The rebirth of the Soul - The cries are heard
 
The pangs of birth- of man and Word
 
 
 
And behold his breast-plate of Gold-
 
An Angel at the Gate
 
Assigned to welcome you Home-
 
And a place for you,
 
And you are called by your Spiritual Name
 
 
Do you know how many have wept for you?
 
Do you know what it is like for our Father
 
To transform His children, through the flesh, for the Soul?
 
It is an accomplishment of the incomprehensible-
 
It is accomplished of His Love-
 
And the Heavens sing of praise and Glory
 
For Him who has Saved Another Child-
 
And your brothers and sisters before you-
 
All know you, completely-
 
And they love you and were praying for you-
 
When you were a sinner.
 
And when you arrive-
 
You meet your Savior,
 
 
Jesus Christ-
 
 
And the Love between you and Him
 
Is contained forever in the Heart of God-
 
It is stronger a flame than the burning sun-
 
 
And down below- upon the dirt roads,
 
Men are killing and dying for mortal power
 
 
In a breath of life-
