"Christmas Brings Christianity Back For Me"

Elizabeth Hawksworth

you forgive the Church the scars caused by your own choices
how gracious
hiding your rebellion behind a noble fašade and the questions
everyone asks, yet you dis-acknowledge the answers given
dare you for one moment think that you were not hated
but rejected
as unwilling to let God change you, yet unable to change God
evicted from the rooms you long yet despise to own
to take unreasonable pride in your rejection rather than weep
your loss
