I have been challenged by this poem called ‘Therapy’ written by Steve Malakowsky. You can read the background, and tribute, over on TSK’s blog.
can i take my addictions into your church
can i sit on your padded pews
can i bleed on your carpet or do you want
me when i’m clean and not now
can i take my addictions into your theology
is it big enough to face my pain
or will i stain your glass with street smells
where can i go
where can i go when i’m addicted . . .
