A Lament?

Christ calls Cain to virtue, but Cain desires it not. For Cain, virtue is a yoke even less bearable than the yoke of self-love. Cain desires filth. Cain loves filth, and he hates himself for loving filth. Christ says: love one another, and ye have loved the Father. But can Cain love the very one who condemns him for what he cannot help but love? And Cain thinks: the internal battle is between Lupus and Agnus, between wolf and lamb. But the Spirit teaches inwardly: there is no struggle between flesh and spirit, for the covenant between YHWH and Father Cain availeth much. May the Father of lights have mercy upon Cain, whose eyes have let in much darkness.
