Self-Sacrifice

Allfather, you my Fulltrui.

The call of your raven
has led me on mundane ways
to unforeseen depths.

On convoluted switchbacks
the road has lead me
straightaway into your hands.

Hangatyr, my sacrifice means:

From my wounds is flowing
the strength of my faith.

From my loneliness
blossoms out my following.

From my pain
grows new understanding.
