Surrender Without Suffixes

Willing surrender is not obligation,

with me pancaked from above, layer upon layer, weighed under the load—

a debt of service, of reaction, of even prayer.

Rather, obligation must radiate like spokes on a wheel,

one after another only added to the fullness of my life as I stand centered free—

desperate arms raised to the Holy.

Surrender makes obligation manageable, a part of the faith dance.

Surrender to FatherSpiritSon, stripped of carnal necessity and external have-to’s,

nothing added, nothing weighted,

with devotion treasured above all else.
