I look at the law
All the legal requirements, the legislation, the loopholes like hang ropes
and it frightens me. It irritates me, it frustrates me
the law which is incomprehensible, which seems solely to elicit punishment and pain.
I wish the saline that pools around my eyes wouldn’t cloud my unfocused vision
but rather refract the lies and help me to see the wonder of your
mystical, confusing but ultimately upright
Psalm 119 vs 18 – Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law.
