Love Casts Out All Evil

“Love casts out all evil,” She said.

She is casting out her evil 

with beauty and gentle faith

transforming into light by the river.

She lost her daughters 

to her addictions, but

was able to hold onto

a tail of light

as it dangled 

in the well.

three years she climbed

and clung

to reach this new world

where she cleans under 

the bridge and talks to angels

while the current, still far

away, rolls on.

She rises with a smile

to face the new love of each day.
