An amateur poet's take on feminism
The reading for the First Sunday of Lent was the single briefest summary you’re going to get of Christ’s time spent in the wilderness: Mark chapter 1, verses 12-15
And at once the Spirit drove him into the desert and he remained there for forty days, and was put to the test by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and the angels looked after him. After John had been arrested, Jesus went into Galilee. There he proclaimed the gospel from God saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is close at hand. Repent, and believe the gospel.’
Knowing hunger, knowing thirst.
Of what could be water.
To be tempted, coerced.
Of what could be food.
To feel alone.
Of friends, of home.
Spent fasting, spent praying
To give thanks to God.
Spent sleeping, spent praying
Of the gifts He gave.
