Our Predicament, Our Magnificence

Our Predicament, Our Magnificence

At war within

With every breath

The struggle with sin

The struggle with death

Fascination with beauty

And with transcendence

Such our predicament

Such our magnificence.

Inspired by words by Thomas Merton in ‘The New Man’: “Life and death are at war within us. As soon as we are born, we begin at the same time to live and die.”
