The Crucifixion of Reality

A poem

************

I care.

“Nothing really matters.”

“I don’t care.”

“It is all relative.”

Everything matters.

*

God is real.

“God is dead.”

“There is nothing.”

“Death is the end.”

Nothing is lost.

*

I know the truth.

“There is no truth.”

“Everyone has some truth.”

“I feel the truth.”

The truth.

*

No. It is not so.

“What a bigot.”

“Arrogant.”

“Lacking empathy.”

Logic.

*

Please forgive me.

“What a drama queen.”

“That’s unnecessary.”

“You did nothing wrong.”

I sinned.

*

I pray.

“Send me your thoughts.”

“Good vibes.”

“Don’t pray. Act.”

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

*

Best wishes from your brother and servant in the Lord,
David J.W. Inczauskis, S.J.

    Very nice David.

    We have forgotten to preach that Truth is a person – Christ Jesus.
