Win or Lose, What's at Stake Is Grace
|Hear me read the poem:
As a .wav file
As an MP3 file
Win or lose, what's at stake is grace.
One pits oneself against one's wildest dreams,
Relying, more than anything, on will.
Life is far more lustful than it seems,
Demanding more of one than an embrace.
Come witness, then, the love that life redeems
Upon a field of lovers, dreamers all,
Playing with more passion in our place.
