Did Teresa of Caclutta
Name rightly
the darkness she felt
in her soul?
Did she call out
the demons attacking her
by name? Or perhaps…
Did she mis-diagnose…and
see the darkness
in her heart as real…
thus making You into
a mirage? Or..
Did she suffer from
the real darkness
that the Enemy
will try to bring
to us
hoping that we will
take it into our souls
lose sight of You…
refusing even
to obey Your clear
commands? Or…
Did she fight on
like You did, Lord?
Did she shout
her questions into
the face of darkness
like You did
as You laid down
Your life-blood
for us all?
“My God!”
“My God!”
“Have You forsaken Me?”
Did she obey
like You did, Lord?
In the dark
to do the right
with the little
she had?

Love you, old Jesus guy. You aren't old, by the way.
