They said she was a hypocrite

because she changed

and they didn’t believe it.


Her words were different

Her actions, too.

She didn’t do what she used to do.


She got up once

at the front of the church

and told her story

but they wanted lunch –

didn’t want to hear

about glory.


Her life held true.

The change that changed her

was real and she felt new.


The hating hearts

didn’t understand

didn’t want to

So she pressed on

and found a place

where she could belong.
