i remember when

he was alive

and my close friend

he would tell

me

you have the courage

and the gist

of what it takes

to be a catholic

and a father

and over

time

i have found that

only them that cares

will tell you of the true

splinters in your eyes

and the reasons why

i am acerbic

i am anathema

i am repellant

yet i too

like you and you

have the love of Christ

within the palm of my hand

and so i will

and can

partake

of the divine meal

of His

daily!
