"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

Poem, ‘The Drifting Arks of the Hearts of Men”

Poem: ‘The Drifting Arks of the Hearts of Men”
By: Eric Gajewski
From the work, "Fortress of the Soul"

This is the latest poem from the work "Fortress of the Soul". I hope you enjoy it and share it. Long live Christ our King.

 Please play the video below and listen as you read the poem

Uponst thy warm summer shores, I once knewest Thee
Thine Divine Face ever so clear
Beating in reflection uponst thy Waters
But it wast in the Writing, that I wouldst leave
Having headed for my own ark, I didst part
Drifting along aimlessly, thinking to be “free”
By self’s haughty way of “liberty”
In great irony I wast held captive in prison
On my own ark called Tyranny
Finding no rest, so far from thy Sacred Heart
I sawest the Storms of sin further creeping
I wast thence pulled out more deeply by my own fault
This tendency of nature sought to pull me under completely, so overpowering
Now thirsting and without sail I turnest to thy shores yet again
Pleading Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! I didst cry
With tears withheld which only added to my misery
Until Thy hidden Love arose silently so as to guide me
In the gentle flow below of Thy unseen Tide
Which straightened out my path back unto Thee interiorly
For where Ye art my heart wast designed alone to be
Now safely following thy Will’s Footprints
Along this shore I call home with Mary, this Sea Galilee
With goal alone to please and see my Beloved smiling
Alas! Two hearts mystically united so perfectly
How silly! For these chambers within could not beat, there would be no stability
This heart of mine without Thee wouldst only vainly bleed
But whilst we resist, whilst we still wage war with thy Will
Thou wouldst, on the contrary, in Charity, only seekest to fill
For how often we fight so ignorantly against our hearts only Source and End
O’ Lord, how foolish we art!
In this scene which I see perpetually and which now my mind is painting
Called the drifting Arks of the hearts of men…

 'If you desire heaven, you must walk in the way which leads to heaven; if you should walk in the way which leads to hell, you will one day unhappily find yourself there.'
St. Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

'Now although man is created for the possession of happiness, yet, having deviated from his true end, his nature has become deformed and is entirely repugnant to true beatitude. And on this account we are forced to submit to God this depraved nature of ours which fills our understanding with so many occupations, and causes us to deviate from the true path, in order that he may entirely consume it until nothing remains there but himself; otherwise the soul could never attain stability nor repose, for she was created for no other end.'
St. Catherine of Genoa
