Lent 18



I romanticize

Apologies for that that

I think we need to give ourselves

A pause

And a chance

For something good


Deserving of so many

Repentance for the rest

Then everyone can have


Color, sound, texture

In life

To have it fully

With safety in



There’s more, of course

And that’s all right

Ask not what the heaven’s for

But how is life on

Earth today
