Ask Soon

From the July 2014 issue of The Christian Science Journal

This poem is from a new collection of poetry, Boundless Light, recently published by The Christian Science Publishing Society. It includes a sampling of poems that have appeared in the Christian Science periodicals over a number of decades. “Ask Soon” first appeared in the Christian Science Sentinel, August 28, 1971.

There’s one question you’ve got to ask yourself soon. It’s this: “Do I want to find and feel the fresh truth of Christian Science over again—to be absorbed with this light— more than I want to lose the dark of pain or of grief, of crisis or hate?” Ask soon.
