Chronic homesickness

Chronic homesickness                                                                                     

I’ll face my fears one day (I’m told),
a steady gaze dispelling them at last,

not to prove myself worthy
nor to please the Lord of Bliss,

not with the intention of becoming
Who I reportedly already am

but merely to settle an outstanding debt.
To offer in obedience and good conscience

the only mite of currency I possess,
returning (at last) what belongs to Him

and in the process becoming empty enough
to be wafted back to the now foreign shore of my origin.

O child of God, for your lonely, chronic
homesickness, surrender is the only cure.
