Then again

Once upon

My worst nightmare…

Your shadow overpowered

My Light…

Your shameful actions

Kept me

Imprisoned…

Loneliness and despair set in

Grace stayed

Alone no more ~

Grace dwells in life’s crushing moments.
To whom it should concern…

May I beseech thee?

Who me?

No him,

That’s her…
Then again ~

There once was a girl who cried

Help!

She went to the wolf himself

Thinking him her sheep

Cried

Help!

Show me,

Your faith.

Truth be told,

I only meant to help…

The wolf grinned

Tongue spitting out

Words oozing with deceit,

He hissed ~

“Why my dear

There is a process for that ~

Have no fear…

Of myself?

Why I empathize

Of course…

Silly girl.”

Then he took that sleazy grin

And ran off again

Leaving that little girl

High and dry

Stunned actually…

The wreckage remains

Never admitting blame

Sketching away

Silently waiting

For Love’s last breath ~
So I will shout

Until your ears bleed

Let my cries be heard

Never again will I be

Raped

Beaten

Frightened

Marginalized

Abused

Dismissed

Told I’m no good

By Christians

Who did that?

Church if course ~

Your church

Not that church over there

But your church

The one

Mom goes to

Any of them…

For

I am

The child

You ignored

The woman

You suppress

The Christ child

You pray for

The Sister

You imagine

That’s

Me

A wounded dove

 Bringing forth

Wisdom and Love

Help

Me!
