A vital part of your identity…

if i’ll braid your tongue
could you speak a little bit formal
a little bit nicer
if i’ll clip it with a hairpin
could your pitch be a little bit low
a little bit sweet
if i’ll sew it with a thread and needle
could you talk to me like a priest
delivering his sermon
and not a sergeant
giving commands to his soldiers
can’t we have a discourse without
the subject of philosophy and you acting like a lawyer
can’t we talk in simple manner
without reciting a declamation like my mother
can’t we exchange views
without giving a lecture like my father
can’t we talk seriously and honestly
without acting a spiel like my brother or sister
can’t we plainly talk like a true friend

the way you talk can point the kind of circles you have
the job that you have
and how you see the world
it’s your window into who you are
which can be a vital part of your identity…



Priesthood…

Priest with cross and holy bible Royalty Free Stock Images

courage has seeped inside you

to know the world

many different vices around

mother has prayed for your safety

papa has words for you to bring along

your calling has been answered

look at you, your priesthood call

devils had been angered…
