"Luke-warm" by Joe DiMino.

What is this Luke-warm!?
Please—don’t bore me!
Would rather be hot
Or cold—
High in the sky
Or down to the earth in dirt—
Alive or dead!
At least, from these
There is one direction;
In these
There is clear motivation;
Never able to look
Up and down at the same-time,
I am all in
Or all out—
All in love
Or actively searching…
All in God
Or nothing at all—
It is the way
Of Heaven and Hell—
I believe
Or I don’t;
A clear note sung in praise
Or condemnation!
But never silent—
If not a voice
Then a pen;
If out of breath
Then all spirit—
