The Last Judgement

In this sense, in this time, with all
courage and all determination, we
call forth the judges of our souls,

here at the end, and we find when
we make this call with fortitude,
it is ourselves who come forth . . .

how can this be?

With what sense, with what time,
with what exercise of courage;
who has determined that when we

would seek to be judged, and fulfill
this yearning for decision here at
the end, that we might first discover...

how we must be?

Then, we sense a better purpose
of time, how it will deter the courser
inclinations of our nerve, and we find

an end, one we can adjudge to be
a most adequate conclusion to this
particular life and at last approve

how we may be.
