my inner struggle

my inner struggle

struggle for my rights

caught up in the maelstrom of events,
an as yet undecided conflict is growing
of contrary emotions --
the energy of the fire which is the source
of the struggle for my basic rights
also feeds the asphyxiating smoke of my aggression

helped by the chill
of indifference in me
my passion to survive is trying
to put out the fire

as long as there is sufficient warmth of love in me
the asphyxiating smoke of aggression
will not get a chance

Wijngaards Institute for Catholic ResearchThis website is maintained by the Wijngaards Institute for Catholic Research.

The Institute is known for issuing academic reports and statements on relevant issues in the Church. These have included scholars' declarations on the need of collegiality in the exercise of church authority, on the ethics of using contraceptives in marriage and the urgency of re-instating the sacramental diaconate of women.

You are welcome to use our material. However: maintaining this site costs money. We are a Charity and work mainly with volunteers, but we find it difficult to pay our overheads.
