Another ramble

 
 
Powerful testimonies,
if any,
are lost in the falling
when
someone is calling time
and
someone always does.
 
We find our own salvation
through
trial and error
and
mistakes are all it takes
to fall.
 
You can swear on the bible
or on a loaf of bread,
it’s what is in your head
that matters.
 
I gave up on giving up
and gave in,
saving
myself for something greater
which
will no doubt come
later.
