Mary
by Henry B Stevens
5/7/2004


Unfit, Mary Marconi
sits alone. head bowed
while the fit edge forward
to receive the sacrament.


Divorced, alone,
Mary thinks about her
annuled remarried husband
while crying softly.


Mary watches the lines
form, receive, and disperse
knowing the lines in
her face have been her downfall.


Devout, caring, believing
her marriage secure
until young smooth skin
broke the holy matrimony.


Now, unequivocally
trapped by church law
she cannot change,
Mary is unfit forever.

i have to agree with sandy although i know it is hard, but the church should not deny happiness to its members...i'm curious though, if her husband had the marriage annulled, would it not also invalidate Mary's marriage, making it okay for her to marry again?

Sad tale about Mary. If I were Mary I would re-marry again. Forget about the church law. One's own happiness comes first.
