This is a Reflection of My Faith


as I went to cross the street
I came up to the light
on the corner

I pressed the button
in denial like St. Peter
one-two- three times
so I could cross

this is a reflection of my faith

I walked through my neighborhood
past the radiation clinic
my parents both died from cancer

my father cancer of the lung
my mother ovarian cancer
that metastasized to her brain
is this how I will go?

this is a reflection of my faith

I went by a house
that still had its Christmas lights on
it's May, they need to come down
I thought

this is a reflection of my faith

I crossed the parking lot by the store
a pretty girl smiled at me and my dog
I have been married twice
I turned away with no response

this is a reflection of my faith
