Baptism by Fire – Alex Franco

July 25, 2010 § 1 Comment

What a strange phrase to use

when the alternative

is so much worse.

They never tell you how

cold it is, how you never

think to have enough

air in your lungs.

Feel that? It’s

salvation, rising like

bubbles above your head.

Reach as you might, you can’t

reach for the surface, golden

with love brushing your

fingertips.

You never believe it when

they finally pull you out,

drenched with faith, or

at least conviction. You

never quite get accustomed

to that current of God you

breathe in

at last.
