Two kingdoms

After Luke 18:15-17

Two kingdoms face each other
across a gulf, a valley, a canyon,
a divide, deep into the earth, one
the kingdom of children, the other
the kingdom of men, of man,
two kingdoms:

one relying on faith
one relying on acts

one a path to peace
one a journey to war

one a passage in faith
one an existence in fear

one kingdom yearned for
one kingdom occupied
