Wounded Warriors

Today I was inspired by a photo posted on Facebook by my friend in England, Brother Lawrence Lew, O.P. His photo and the attached message inspired this poem that I wrote this afternoon. Thank you, Brother Lew, for your beautiful photos and service to Our Lord.


Wounded Warriors

When I am left
Wounded by words,
Betrayed and
by those
who were once
I must remember
at the end
I will kneel
at the feet
of a Sacrificed Savior.
The Resurrected Lord
that I greet

He still carries
the wounds of friends
In His hands.
