second saturday in lent

“For who sees anything different in you? What do you have that you did not receive? And if you received it, why do you boast as if it were not a gift?”  1 Corinthians 4:7

when my words
are as bitter as
the next person’s;
when my anger
is as raw as those
raging in public forums;
when my fears
comfort me more
than my faith, well,
why should anyone
notice anything different
enough that they want
to listen to me,
draw close to me,
share with me?
