Baptism

A poem by Erren Kelly
A sea of ushers in white
led me to the water
piano, organ and voices
surrounded the room with
fire
it was the god of my father
and my mother
like the river, cleasing her
as a young girl
Before god
my life was a blur
of childhood dreams and wishes
and then one day, i got the
call
I stood still, as if
nothing else mattered
like a film negative
being developed
god revealed truth to me
The world became insignifigant
as the baseball i played
with
The ladies in white
lead me to the water
i step in like a negative
waiting for truth
to reveal itself to
me
Fearing nothing
to begin again
