Is it irreverent

to believe what I believe about you?

To be so preoccupied with your scars?

With your limitless love, with your rescue?

I have been so wrong about so many things-

could it be I am wrong about you, too?

I hope not- somehow, I know not, with a certainty I do not understand-

Because you are my desperation

and my hope.

You are my longing

and my fulfillment.

You are the death I must die

and the air that I breathe.

You are the lion that tears and conquers

and the lamb that falls in sacrifice.

But most of all,

You are the rock on which I fall and shatter

and the rock of my redemption.
