April’s Theme: Death

When spiritual felonies are committed against us

the rape of the soul, the murder of our spirit

things that seem completely impossible to forgive

they can fester so deep with the core where light lives

manifesting into life-size weighted puppets

hanging from the ceiling of the soul

turning it upside down from light to darkness

causing a slow and painful death of spirit

when forgiveness is not the chosen way

and these puppets and their shadows

are not, through forgiveness, the things left behind.
