Loc: The left turn I should have ta...
He was betrayed by one he trusted and loved...
Just like me...
He was bound and tied...
Just like me...
He was taunted and called names...
Just like me...
He was humiliated
Just like me...
He was kicked when he was down
Just like me...
They stripped him for all to see...
Just like me...
He was fastened to a tree...
I was tied to a tree...
He was ritually and sadistically abused...
Just like me...
He is the ultimate survivor
But as for me... I'm still in the process or trying to survive
He is alive...
I am just starting to live through his grace and healing

Don't remember where I picked this up. It was titled "The Abused Christ." I like to call it "Christ the Survivor."

Hey Wuamei,

I say if your life resembles his, you must be doing something right.

Les, I agree. Right now the resemblance for me is very vague; it's more a dream & a matter of faith. But then I think that's what it takes.

What impressed me about this poem, wherever it came from, is in how vividly Christ is portrayed as a survivor, which I'd never much thot of before, tho I can't imagine why. For me this is a great source of encouragement & hope. He rose from death. Surely I can rise up into new life out of this living death of abuse...
