Holy Relics

Holy Relics

We search for
holy relics
thinking that if we
hold something holy
in our hands
that it will rub off
and we will be
acceptable in our
own sight as well
as others.

One thought on “Holy Relics

  1. Good thoughts in your verse.
    I think we tend to reach for relics and penances to appease the guilt we feel inside because we know we’re lacking, or have done wrong, as well as to win approval from others.
    Some people try to atone for guilt/buy affection by giving rich gifts. Some make others their scapegoat; thus they aren’t guilty after all. Some just yell louder, as if volume could drown out guilt.
