my nose buried in biblical books and spiritual scriptures
searching for that word or phrase
that will illuminate my mind and redefine my life
making meaning where before there was none
and then I found it, the words tattooed in my brain for years to come
“Ye search the scriptures, for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye shall have eternal life. John5:39.”
and then it hit me
I've read about the afterlife but I never really lived.
