On the last day of the News In Poetry , a positive story.
Also happy anniversary to my lovely wife Chella – Five years of being civilized!
But this poem is for Alan Chambers.
The Light you always wanted us to see
The Truth you urged the sinners to embrace
The Love you swore would one day make them free,
Deliver them into a state of grace:
They’re all still there. The truth, the love, the light
Although they’re not exactly what you meant.
I promise that it’s going to be alright.
Now you’re no longer calling out “Repent!”
The fear that kept you silent for so long
The shame that hid your secret deep inside,
That realization that you’d got it wrong
And that nobody’s truth should be denied.
It’s time now for your final Exodus
Come, step into the rainbow, next to us.
