Augustine Tagaste

Author of Poetry and Prose


Bottom looking up

All above me

Under the dust

Particle unseen


By His breath

Gently propelled

Rising instead

Above earthly hell


His absence

Damnation defined

Soul in transit

Seeking to find


Inglorious form

Unworkable function

Existential storm

Exhausting conundrum


Become worst

To be best

Contrast the world

Life’s only test


Forsake instinct

Abandon reason

Arrogance brings

Spiritual treason


Less than great

Myself small

In humble state

Giving all


Believing in Him

Learning mistakes

In sea of sins

I navigate


Illuminate me

Thy guiding light

Yours I be

True and contrite
