day 102

"Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot me my disciple."  Luke 14:27

perhaps
that cross
            is simply
   the secrets
   another confides
         in us;
   the little child
   hoping for someone
         to help with
      the hard words;
   the loneliness
   of a neighbor
      wandering the
      wilderness of
            adolescence;
   the memories of
   a senior citizen
         who lives them
      over and over
      again.
