My Name

I am named "Martha,"
And, I live up to it.
Serving without ceasing, 
Doing without thinking.
Assuming deeds will save
My soul which only wants
To be like Mary.  Is that
My white stone's name?
Still and rapt, kneeling
Before the Lord, my God?
I'd like to think so.
I pray to know so.

This poem was inspired by my dear friend, Glynn Young.  Please visit his Faith, Fiction, and Friends here
