Persistent War

Grip this. Grip that.
Grip away, and that is that.
Closed hand. Closed fist.
God is finally closing this.
Driven nails. Driven pain.
You will not drive me insane.
Closed eyes. Closed lids.
God has had enough of this.
Persistent pain. Persistent pressure.
God’s persistent love I treasure.
Remember this. Remember that.
God remembers every spat.
Forgetting now. Forgetting then.
God chooses to forget sin.
Given birth. Given mirth.
Through God given worth.
