Saint Nobody


Saint Nobody walks with a purpose
Through streets where no one else dares.
She greets all the lonely and homeless,
Those for whom no one else cares.
 
Saint Nobody never feels frightened
Among the outcasts and thieves;
She fears neither danger nor darkness,
For this is what she believes:
 
She’s been given light that’s for sharing,
Light that she cannot withhold.
Saint Nobody walks with a purpose—
This is what makes her so bold.

An old wooden pallet
With peeling blue paint—
A quirky attraction
For sinner and saint.

Had you a teabowl,
Lady of the sacred heart,
would you stir in love?
