Walking into History

Upon a gilded balcony, history along with a couple of jokes was made.

Jorge became Francis and the world was given another reason to hope.

A good and humble, he thinks more of the poor than himself and now is pope.

He choose to walk a simple path , may God’s grace shine down,

As he leads a people who need guidance and his willingness to listen.

Their world is changing and they need  a new path forged,

Not retreat to the old one.

* A note on this poem, I was raised Catholic but do not attend services anymore. My faith lead me in another direction. The Catholic Church will always be my first spiritual home and I truly hope that today signals something positive for the church, its people and the world.
