_Sincerity often
needs two hearts,
one to
root and one
to flower,
one to smile
in time
of drought and
hold the
poisonous wine of
pain, the thorns
of love and
one to stand
straight, open
his arms and
hang like a savior
on a cross.

This is beautiful! As a Christian and merely as a person - I can truly appreciate the beauty in these words. It's lovely and poignant and very emotive. I really enjoy this.

The last four lines of this poem hit this Roman Catholic like an uppercut, reminding me of how lucky I am to still have the gift of faith, despite having lived a life far from sanctity.

In fact, I may just send this poem to a grammar school friend who is now an agnostic, despite having led a life on the straight and narrow. Maybe it will jar him a bit at this time of year.

Thanks, Amit, for writing this--and thanks to the editor for running a poem like this in a time when spiritual matters are seldom seen on creative sites.

What a poem! This reached my mind, my heart, and my soul.
And such depth with so few words.

Thanks for focusing us to Jesus.

In the Light,
