The Gospel According to Helena


Damn
She loves to write
She knows she may not even be that good
What does it mean when somebody
Loves to do something
So much
She
Doesn't care
Whether or not
It makes any sense to the world

What does it mean when somebody
Does something just because
It makes her feel more alive

What does it mean when somebody
Does something just because
It opens her eyes

What does it mean when somebody
Does something just because
She's missing God

And knows she always will
