Childhood Sunday

“Jesus is dead.
So are all the
other gods
we’ve turned our
backs on.”

the preacher’s words
sharp as swords
on a childhood Sunday
long ago

sometimes I think
about what he said
wondering
if he still believes
or
if he ever did

I didn’t quite understand
what he meant back then
but now that the world
has had it’s way with me
I understand completely

life
can turn
even the most
peaceful of souls
into savage
broken creatures
when faith
lets you down
