O T H E R S

Unbelieving others
were expecting something else.
No, not me.


The steps of others.

Who else will come forward.

Who else
so transformed in birth.

Have turned away.

No.
Not me.
No.

Hundreds?
Thousands?

Others.
Others.
Others.

Called as messengers

Have turned away.

No.
Not me.
No.

Shocked by the realization.
Unwilling to accept
As truth.

Have turned away.

No.
Not me.
No.

Unbelieving.
Expecting something else.
Streets of gold.

From the pulpit.
Congregations.
Old time religion.
Religion of the earth, moon, meadow, forest.
Religion of my Great Grandfather
Shawl across my shoulders.
Religion in Latin of my Grandparents
Religion of the converted.
Religion of the East.
Religion of the weak.

Do not see.

Do not evolve.

Do not understand.

Denial.

Have turned away.

No.
Not me.
No.

Another conversion.

Another step.
