Submit–or Leave


A Flaming Sword cloaked in Righteousness, seared onto hearts in the name of God

words from Godly Men to those who dared to question–

words from mother to son told to stay away forever–

words from grandmother to granddaughters, excising their hearts–

words echoed through time to an unborn baby boy–

words that tore flesh, severed ties, erased memories, murdered love itself


Dark tears fall into a puddle below

The puddle flows to a stream

The stream flows to a river

The river joins with other rivers

As they empty into the midnight blue ocean


My children are drowning and crying and afraid.  Shackled, I am screaming for help…

But nobody hears
