BETTER FOR HIM HAD HE NOT BEEN BORN
Lent begins this week.
This poem was written in 2004 and appeared in Spindrift, an anthology published by Northwind Publishing, compiled for the Walt Whitman Festival in Ocean Grove, NJ, in 2006. I didn't know her name when I wrote the poem, but have since come to know this exciting, vibrant, spirit-filled woman is Carol Anne Zingale. Carol Anne is a member of my congregation, Beth Israel Messianic Center, Wayne, NJ.
