I see the light through the long, dark antechamber.
Some believe Jesus has passed over to be with his Father in heaven.
This, what I remember from my teachings at Catholic school.
So now what am I to believe as the sun
shines brightly on this ‘dark’ Saturday.
I want to rejoice even if I was taught to
“believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit…
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever
shall be world without end, Amen.”
Oh but I’ve mixed up the Apostle’s Creed with the Gloria Patri.
And that’s just what the church did to me – mix me up.
But still, world without end is a comforting thought.
And just what is meant by the ‘world’?
The earth, the globe, the planet, the biosphere.
Mankind, humankind -we are the world
We are the world. We are the children
* “There comes a time
When we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, and it’s time to lend a hand to life
The greatest gift of all.”
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be
World without end, so Sunday stay the fuck home. Amen.
* Michael Jackson, Lionel Ritchie
