This Cup

This cup
Can you drink it
to the bitter end?
This cup
Can you raise it full?
And say amen
This cup
Can you endure the pain, and
Still believe in life?
This cup
Fermented fruit,
Dual blest with life and death
I took this cup
And raised it up, and
Cursed my fate
I took this cup
And drank
It to the dregs
I took this cup
And swallowing bitter lees
I blest my life
This cup
The sacramental cup
Of life
