Take Me Higher - Poem by Tony Gardner

Lift my mind from the pit
Then the body element of physicalness can't resist
Move me with inspirational words
Show these eyes beauty in the twilight
For the known is dark adventure
The capable isn't a sin free life
The shocking is serving an unworthy purpose
Touch my soul with the flame of faith
So I can't deny the divineness of fate
Push me with motivational deeds
inform these ears of deeper peace
Seeing we've inherited shame,
Clinged tightly to worldly things
& embraced things truly bad for the heart
