The Summoning

There is a battle that ensues
In mind and body both
Each fights within itself nonstop
And both against the other too.

The more my mind darts forth and back
And far and wide and long and fast,
The more my busy body sinks
And aches and downward droops.

As these two the battle goes
There is another dwells within:
The heart -- in all its glory lies
Between the two and yet forgot.

Divine Redeemer help me see
That heart alone doth summon me
And should those walls come down at last
Then I might love
And peace will reign

And I might truly live.
