Poetry: messiah: freedom, struggle, survival, salvation: religious, metaphysical poem

A book excerpt from the religion and spirituality online library.







When a newly caught fish is thrown into a boat already loaded with many others, made docile over time, this new one flops and thrashes about wildly, mad at its terrible plight, and the others, revivified by the frantic energy of the new fish's fight, begin, from the torpor of their slow deaths, to also flop and thrash about wildly, and so all are lifted strong by the contagion of freedom and are now able to sink the sinkable ship.

Ships sink. Dead men float.

Silence is not the intended outcome of screaming. But it occurs.



(excerpted from THE DREAM OF BEING: aphorisms, ideograms, and aislings, by Jack Haas)
