Renouncement

Though he gained popularity

As a hymn writer of brilliance

He felt no joy

In contrast there was

A sense of alienation

From organized religion

Unaware of his inner turmoil

His congregation expected

Him to scale greater heights

Unable to live with this dichotomy

His religion he did renounce.
