Ode to Mama T

In the depths of despair
With mercy to spare

Reminded of Judas'
Lack of care-- yet

Remembering Jesus'
Concern even there--

How do I begin--
Though aware--

Seeing life suffering
And warned -- again

I'll tell you Christianity
May seem just as

Jaded as the reality
Of Mama T -- but

Forgiveness was not
Questioned by the Lord

Our Savior whose mercy
Holds hope unwavering


In honor of Mother Teresa
For her canonization of sainthood
