Literally, the poem has 26 lines, but can go beyond that, starting with “A” again if the poet has more ideas he wants to write on the topic.

As it is in hea-v-en! I said with quivering heart
Blazing between my ribs
Cluttering thoughts flirting my mind
Doubts and fears rocking within my veins
Ego of unbelief weighed down my words
Fire and ice was all I sensed
God! It’s hard!
Heart-ful waves of pain shot down my soul
Inviting scenes of past unanswered prayers
“Just a childlike faith” he whispered while
Knights of angry “what ifs” crowded me
Laying upon me crown of murky uncertainties a
Matchless moment of inheriting Adam’s fruit
Nibbling my hopes for faith
Orgasm of impossibilities sealed my lips
“Peace be still!” A voice thundered
Quaking my body soul and spirit
Ruffling the masterpiece of the knights as the pieces
Slip through the air voila! I could feel my
Trembling self bracing stillness it’s
Unimaginable! fire and gentleness overwhelmed me
Views of grace began uprising he said
“With me you are limitless” he
Exalted my bit of faith though childlike yet
Youthful in strength with devine possibilities from the
Zenith where he resides.
