Broken Voice
by My Epic



 

Am I a barren temple left for newer ways of speaking mysteries my veils cannot contain? Should I prepare to winter spans again of silent centuries pierced for only certain men? What if I wake to find Youíve gone? What if Your presence was withdrawn & I was mistaken all along to think I could become Your home? Itíd be no surprise to finally know that I am truly alone. Come death but likely sooner Iíll be alone. You moved Your temple inside our bones & itís so hard to trust that You wonít move again. For all eternity You, stood with Your Father in perfect unity. And when You walked the earth, You only went were He led, You only spoke what He said. So for everything You left, & all of the glory You forfeit, no matter how low You were sent, You still couldnít know what itís like to be alone. Disgraced but You were never alone. Betrayed but You were never alone. Tortured but still never alone and nothing is worse than being alone. I have been thinking hard about us trading places that maybe I could wear Your beauty if You put on my shame. Jesus Iíve been trying so hard to look like You that I almost missed the worst of what I put You through. You didnít die for sins, You died covered in them a prideful lying thief gasping out my final breaths. For that one moment You looked just like me so Your father left You & You died completely alone. For me, You were alone. He couldnít bear it so He left You all alone. No better promise than true sympathy. You conquered death all alone. Cause Youíve known the deepest of all our needs. Never again, Never alone.
