a journey of loss and reclamation
The day had come,
my faith was shaken,
the heartbreak of
a life mistaken.

I gave them my trust
in those formative years.
Trust easily lost
by the pastor, I fear.

I suppose I expected him
to follow Christ's way
but he, being human,
had been led astray.

The church congregation
were of no comfort or aid
and perpetuated more rumors
based on the things he said.

I lost my faith in Christianity
and for decades it could not be found.
Until, with one foot through Death's door
did my faith in Christ rebound.
