the first 30 years…

lenten journey to freedom
time not of me but for you
in time, for both

o girls who cry at his feet
his veil-o-his veil!

Modern times say –
they were Modern times then –
making it Modern times now –

my shoes are not sandals
yet my walking, tires
o weakness, o excuse

interrupted, interrupter, interruption
reality breaks into thoughts
does that mean, I believe less in You?

lenten journey to freedom
Ask of Me –
lenten journey until – It Is Finished.
