No more prizes in flesh

I gain no consolation
in being a missionary
with a lost mission
finding redemption
excavated in being a companion
to the spiritual fish
never missing
intellectual adventure
affording no more expenditures
to a one way sea
i warrant my own immortality
a jailer made me
overseer to those
who cannot see
seeking estate
gates that fall in probate
strutting past overt intention
if over zeal makes them laugh
then humor is my fast
for it is my mission
only to love
as he loves me
the only gem worth digging
emotions and jewels
i could never posses
only confess
