Insatiable Desire – A Poem


I am a flame born of celestial fire
     I bear a name, Insatiable Desire.
I wear in heart an image all divine,
     Past human art, not traced by mortal line.
I hear God call to taste His heavenly powers
     I give my all to burn life’s single hour.
So let me burn through fetters that would bind;
     This will I learn and freedom will I find.
I shall return to Love’s eternal fire,
     There shall I burn–a satisfied desire.
– John Wright Follette


“As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.”
Psalm 17:15
