Surrendering My Strongholds

Holy Jesus,
living Christ,
I bring
these tainted
visions to

You. Daymares.
Voices. Wicked
- or effluent
of a
fractured mind?
Temptations

keyed snug
right where
I'm prone...
apple to
the worm.
I bring
them to
Your immovable,

Your invincible

Cross. You

welcome,
take them
to You.

Your hands
impaled,
it's Your
heart that
holds

these vaunting
strongholds
- castles I
surrender...
With such
flagrant, fearful
pride.
