No Sanctuary

Kneeling in the front pew,
alone, paralyzed.
I want to run.
He’ll return,
in mitre and full vestments.
The crack of the staff,
Rings through the sanctuary.
Ashamed, I will obey.

      Very sad for the many who were harmed irreparably by a church they were taught to trust and that is in so many ways still in denial about the roll it played in destroying those lives.
