THE DISPASSION OF CHRIST
(6/4/18)

life
is best
served
cold

subtract
the emotion

the adrenaline

the human

and a
spiritual path
will become
apparent

but a
simple solution
is contrary
to our natures

we require
the angst
of religion
to find
The Divine

sad
really

instead
of crying out
to the heavens
at the end

we would
have been
much better served
by a savior
who calmly

quietly

removed himself
from the cross

walked
among us
throughout
eternity

stayed
here
as the perpetual
priest

that
would be
the true
sacrifice

and the
doubters
would be
diminished
to a wandering
few
