faith alone

i would wish
to wade into battle like arjuna
detached from the outcome so much
that the battle isn’t even part
of my story

i would wish
that faith alone
could buoy me over the waves
of loneliness that wash over me
and etch themselves forever
in my story

i would wish
my victories to be decisive
my foes perish or lay down before me
and all my challenges victorious
in my story

i would wish
to wade in the sea with fishes,
with pomegranits and olives on shore,
and joy to she who sits to write
at my story
