Dividing Love - Poem by cheryl davis miller

Mary had her spent life lavishly;
she had lived it so hard and fast.
She met a man in the marketplace
Who told her all about her past.

She stared into His eyes in dismay;
as He spoke, ' Mary start anew.'
Ran to tell her friends and family,
'It's exactly what I shall do.'

Mary had a sister Lilah who
had lived her life differently.
Mary spent her live in deviltry
Lilah a temple devotee.

Mary knew He was the Messiah
Lilah said she'd never believe.
Sisters once woven as one clothe
torn apart; began to unweave.

Lilah held to words men had spoken;
Mary those that Messiah spoke.
One continued on in liberty,
the other bowed beneath mans yoke.

Thus is the tale of two sisters who;
are today divided by love.
One follows the words of earthly men;
one follows, The One from above.
