An old man told his grandson, "There is a fight between two wolves inside of us. One is bad-- it is lust, pried, and lies. The other is good-- love, caring and humility." The boy thought for a moment and asked, "Which one wins?" "The one you feed."

a little girl in church,
i sat in the pews singing hymns;
for communion,
i ate the body
i was the body
i devoured myself whole.

what belief do i have
in a god that has held me,
but has held me in the fire?
i believe, but

what trust do i have
in a god that has formed me
but has broken me as well?
i trust, but

what hope do i have
in a god that required perfection
yet made me as i am,
a misshapen soul?
i hope, but

why do i continue to
believe in a god
that makes me his body
only to have me
devour myself whole?
