Poem: Your Servant

Drums beat
Sounding a rhythm
Echoing in sympathy
With the pounding of my heart
Wind blows
Refreshing air over me
Filling my soul
With the call of my destiny
I am a servant of the light
Shining in the darkness
Crying your name in the silence
That echoes all over me
I am your hands and your feet
My body devoted
Purely to serve thee
Your sword in the wilderness
Defending and championing
Brining justice to all
In keeping with promises
Made long ago
I am your agent
Of mercy and tenderness
Showing your love
To all who are surrounding me
So what it comes down to
In final analysis
Is I am yours
Forever in harmony
Doing your will
And casting your light on the earth
This is m destiny
My soul-keeping purpose
And though it is lonely
And painful and tiring
It is my sworn following
My future
My Majesty
And so I cry
In darken I
Choose to be
What I do see
As my destiny
A servant of the light
Shining through the night
Doing what is right
Your servant I am
And always shall be
