Went to the word market
looking for bargains.

found some:    cheap PAIN
cheap LOVE
HURTS galore.

In the fancy alluring boxes
Almost sucked me in.

Rack on rack:  Disobedience
Bad Choices
PLEASE NO MORE

All went in Scum Bags

Box upon box of
A clean looking place
nothing fancy

I saw baskets full
Running over
Faith
Hope
Love.

­                          Redemption
Gr­ace
Mercy

ALL WERE FREE.

Some of the same words
used differently…
Love was fulfilling
Pain and Hurts were still there
but in the distant memory.

Redemption and Hope were
in strong demand this time of year.

There was “scent of Rose”
lingering in the air.
Memories of love
caressed my spirit.

The place was not crowded
the people were the best.
