Born to destroy

After I John 3:1-8

A strange birth,
a strange calling, this,
a stranger destiny,
born to destroy the work
of evil, the edifice
constructed on lies
and flourishing, growing
a black blossoming,
fruitful in fertile soil
of bent desire, the worship
of self. So he comes
to divide, to separate,
to set aside, to destroy,
to save.
