Why?

We all think we are getting better.
It’s not true.
When I was young I got into some
Fights, held my own,
Then decided to be a pacifist.
Jesus was calling.
In my head I was moving toward
Sainthood;
In my heart I was still holding
My own in the fights.
Now, I’m losing the battle.
The pugilist is just under
The surface. Why?
Mortality? My aging face
In the mirror? Sins of the past?
Politics? All of the above
And a lot more?
Jesus is still calling.
