Confused Catholics Called to Rise Above

Al Drinkwine – Seattle Chapter

My soul is Catholic
My mind so confused,
How can limited,
Single-minded Catholics
Our world family so abuse

Having lost an infant
Through miscarry,
And a son
Due to untreated mental health,
The pain of love lost
I leave on no shelf

If abortion,
And sexual discrimination,
are the main issues
On which a president is elected,
Many moldy minds
Need to be disinfected

What about those
Who die at our border,
Due to warped moral values
Of a presidential, glory hoarder

And there are our homeless,
Increasing in numbers,
With no place to live
Or safely slumber

Add to the unacceptable pile
Our victims of endless conflicts,
So the military-industrial complex
Can reap financial benefits

My soul is Catholic
My mind so confused,
How can limited,
Single-minded Catholics
Our world family so abuse

As a cradle-Catholic
No need for confusion,
From the cradle to the cross
Christ, cast no elusion

His love
Not exclusive,
Or abusive,
His life’s message
Remains totally inclusive

No single issue
Dominated His love,
His blended message,
Calls us, to rise above
