this constant struggle with words,
this making of poems,
will bring sainthood?”

    No, it’s better than sainthood. It’s being an artist.

    Well that depends! How honest do the poems have to be? A huge question to ponder Elizabeth.. what is the purpose and is that purpose all that we make it out to be! Thanks so much for sharing your poem!

    Sure, sure, sure, sure, sure. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.’…Word is truly Omnipotent. Happy All Saints Day 🙂
