An Original Poem: This Metamorphosis Brings Freedom


This Metamorphosis Brings Freedom
by Stacey Louiso

The time has come
Everyone is now dead
Now is the time to overcome

Complete the good work You began
Open the cracks of my heart
Search every dark crevice
Pour out the pain; make it visible to Thee and to me

Yes, my LORD
Yes, my LORD
Create in me a clean heart, and 
Renew a right spirit within me. 

Wrap me in a chrysalis as I morph into You
It has been a long time coming

In order to be completely re-imaged
A metamorphosis in reverse
Back to the womb of creation; a return to dust
To swim in Your life giving waters

Hence, becoming a tree, planted by a stream, meant to flourish
The time has come
Ye must be born again
Truly, this metamorphosis brings freedom

“Behold, I was born in iniquity and in sin
when my mother conceived me.
Surely You desire truth in the inner being.
Make me know wisdom inwardly.
Cleanse me with hyssop and I will be clean.”
(Psalm 51:7-9 TLV)
