Axis Awry

Mind cries foul
spirit shouts fight
heart is  evil all the time 
can't tell wrong from right.

Heretical volition
axis awry
yes is no
 black is white
up is down
 in is out
reflected back 
in reverse 
trouble and sin
it makes me spin
 i sink
too weak to swim
too lost to seek
you win.
you win.
you win.

Knees collapse
heart concedes
spirit stifles mutinous will      
heaven roars and vice recedes.

For he remembers our frame
and remembers we are only dust--
 prone to sin.
Psalms 103:14
