The Adulterous woman, and also

The Syrophoenician woman, and also

The sinful woman (a prostitute), and also

The woman (also sinful) at the well,

They cry

Out in pain, longing and pleading.

Their names? They have none. Stripped even

Of this dignity, naked before God

And the crowds, they are nothing but

Their sin. Titles, given forgiveness, recklessly

Abundantly, without reservation, they

Stand at kingdom gates to usher other

Nameless sinners, the Pillars of Life.
