Never enough. Never enough.
I am glory and disgrace.
I’m tripping up at the end of the race.
I’m a misspelled card, a hung-up phone.
I’m always knowing and never known.
I’m always reaching but never touching,
Stuck in loving love more than loving.
I’m the thrill of life, your greatest wish,
The end of the ride, an ice-cold kiss.
I’m a rocket jet, a misdrawn map,
A question mark in your lap.
I’m an orc with flowers.
I’m crumbling towers.
I’m never enough.
If you see a man riding on the clouds of the sky,
Tell him I’m hiding in the woods nearby.
Tell him to look for the one unclean
With a mark on his brow of the world unseen.
He’s chopping wood at a frantic pace,
Singing, “I am glory and disgrace.”
Many moons ago, a series of suspiciously providential events led Daeus to cast his lot among the worldwide community of Christian storytellers. Since then, no reports indicate he has come back out. Perhaps he is lost among those fine gallivanters forever. Rest in peace, Daeus Lamb.
Daeus has the twin ambitious visions of reaching thousands of readers with his fiction and helping other Christian artists do the same. In pursuit of the second vision, he is currently involved as a board member of Story Embers and runs his own online endeavor to help writers: Excelsior Writing School.
In pursuit of his first vision (Daeus often gets things out of order), Daeus is building a following of amazing readers and working on his first fantasy trilogy, which he hopes will inspire his readers with its heartfelt themes, semi-allegorical aspects, and of course plain-old-fun action and adventure! To join his hoard of jaw-droppingly-wonderful readers, pick up your free copy of his book God of Manna and get reading.
You can also follow him on YouTube where he posts weekly videos analyzing the fantasy genre or reviewing books.
