THE FOURTH WORD
"My God, My God, Why have you forsaken me?"
(Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34).
The Word of Abandonment

Where will tomorrow go?
All fear and mist,
all darkness, the primal scream
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
I walk the highways, broken glass and stone,
Everything is rust.
All the windows rolled up,
cars tinted dark see me invisible.
I see the cross everywhere, empty,
The thinnest hope,
echoes of promise
breaking the stillness of the night.
