Yesterday’s controversies of the 2019 marches – The Women’s March and The March for Life are still reverberating today.

As a woman and a Christian, I am pro-choice, which is not to say I favor abortion. My decisions are between God and myself. Not all circumstances are the same. My clarity with decisions rest in His peace.

lay me down

 

unwinnable
like the Vietnam war

no homecoming for the innocent
shame the prosthetic

toxic
seething
a gangrenous rage

oozing
like a warm pungent cheese

counting years
like yesterday
no separation
not even death

forgiveness
without repentance

lay me down
by peaceful waters

Country Road

Country Road

Wouldn’t it be nice if our world could enjoy peace?

Is too idealistic to imagine such a world?

Together, is it a possibility?

In that moment when the setting sun dips her toe into dawn on the other side, I dream of peace for you and I on my lonely country road.

 

together
imagining peace
setting sun
