Poem/lyrics by HilLesha O’Nan: “The Preacher’s Wife”

The Preacher’s Wife

There's the preacher's wife
She isn't clean as many may think
Her pretty white dress
    doesn't show
the dirt.
that lurks within her heart.
Behind closed doors, she's waging wars
with her own demons
that she'll have to confront
         every Sunday.

She has built a facade
brick by brick
Sealed with sin, but
you wouldn't know! as she
shouts out "Hallelujah!"
While dancing merrily with
that fake smile plastered on her face.
But, who is to have any say?
She's the Preacher's wife
And she'll say you're the one that is unholy
and "that you're paving 
             the road to hell
"if you don't change your ways"
little does she know
that it will not be before long.
When her hypocrisies
will be revealed
on the day the true angels
will sing.
