Still Leaving Egypt

Before we left Egypt 
we were telling the story
of our liberation,
Even as we consumed
the idol of our oppressors.
We are a people
whose kavannah is to hope.
Life Force of the Matrix of The Holy Blessed One,
Help me 
set alight the chametz
blocking the integrity of my alignment
of Da’at’s relational consciousness


Ablaze within the tenderness
of Tiferet’s vulnerable heart,


Transformed by Yesod’s deepest connection
for the sake of 
Shekhinah’s tzedek v’shalom.


I do not want the world to burn.


What I want
is flame enough
to cauterize the wound,
ransoming emunah’s holy letters,
to create the redeemed future
You want me 
to see.
