Redemption

by m. e. roach

 

there’s an girl in the corner

a girl that nobody sees

building up her walls

isolating

justifying

hurting inside

one day she was like you and me

a day before the pain

a day before the darkness

she’s going down

under the shadow of a steeple

alone

unseen

 

there’s a Man

He’s bleeding

He’s homeless

He’s dirty

He reaches for her hand

with His own, nail-scarred and twisted

 

She looks up in His dirty face-

under the shadow of a steeple

a dying girl is laughing

 

“Oh my Lord, You’re so beautiful”-

silence

broken heart is stilled

 

He strokes her hair, smiling

Welcome home, beloved.
