Believing today

I’ve been so infatuated with the Word,

eager to explore, indulge, learn anew.

I’ve been so deeply trusting in the capital

Love of God.

I’ve been so, so hopeful

to become a woman of faith

in a progressive, welcoming community

and live a life along the Sacraments

to express my awe and wonder

for human life.

Perhaps this is the junction

where the Church and

I finally go separate

ways. Because I do not

belong to a community

who openly shuns others.
