b.y.o.b.

Bring your own book:
     ­the one with the dog-eared pages
depicting favorite moments lived,
     the one with all the highlighting
of hard lessons learned,
     the one with the many scribbled
notes you keep forgetting and—
     especially—the one stained by the times
when things got more than a little messy.

Don’t mind the other books.
     Yours matters most.
When you read it aloud in the
     church of each moment,
read each verse as clearly and
     as loudly as you can
from the heart.
