Pilate's Hands

 

Without conscience,
we say
all is well
with our sisters
who lacerate wombs,
yank mistakes
and inconveniences.
It is not we
who siphon brains
or scrape the fertile lair.
We cast votes behind curtains
and gloat shamelessly
of our rights.
It is not we
who do the deed.
Innocent of blood
of these just persons,
guiltless hands
color the water,
ignorant participants
of a new crucifixion.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
