The Witness: Poetry

She sat with her back
to me before she turned
around to speak

Then she wove a
biblical tale of God's
sovereignty and the
Christian right to rule

And no doubt she thought
I left because I did not
wish to hear the True Word

But in reality,
I was saddened that I
could not articulate

how difficult it is
to converse with someone
who dismisses All

because they know
the absolute truth they believe

is the only path for Everyone.
