Faith crisis poetry

Flying to Space

  1. Flying to space while anchored to ground
  2. Wishing for silence but drawn to the sound
  3. Sailing the ocean while anchored to bay
  4. Wanting to shout with nothing to say
  5. Climbing a mount yet nowhere to hold
  6. Craving for heat but frozen in cold
  7. Running a race yet stuck in your stance
  8. Hoping to rest but forced to still dance
  9. Eating a feast with no dish in sight
  10. Longing to love but desparate to fight
  11. Swimming the lake with feet on the shore
  12. Aching for less while settling for more

Support independent journalism

By Kim Siever

I live in Lethbridge with my spouse and 4 of our 6 children. I’m a writer, focusing on political news, social issues, and the occasional poem. My politics are radically left.

I’m also dichotomally Mormon. And I’m a functional vegetarian: I have a blog post about that somewhere around here. My pronouns are he/him, and I’m queer.
