The fierceness of his love
Left him with no shield of self-will
Not his will he did
Dangerously advanced towards the cross
Peter trying to ice his zeal
His will became real
To do the father’s will
Self was lost
Yet this ferocity never left him
So Saul caught the flu of physical blindness
Only to be inducted into spiritual sight-seeing
The fuel to his new fierceness.
By Simeon Chidi, 2017.
