the stone

condemn the one that i adore?
ah, no!
she has life yet!
she can yet shine,
and can arise
from the dust she kneels upon!
why should i choose
to rid my life of her?
let him who has no sin
cast first.
to her,
i echo back the voice
of the rejoicing father
welcoming the prodigal,
and that gentle admonition,
“go, and sin no more.”
