For Carers

Galatians 6:17
No, it is not arrogance
but relief
to see
in me
the Christ pain-bearer.

'Have you ever thought', he said
to me in my crucifixion,
'You represent to me the Suffering One?'

Compounding my pain, I never had.

It is not only my own self
that bears this weight
but the One in whom
my being was formed, is held
in-breathed by the Creator.

Not my tears and curses
but borne
by Another,
refracting hope and healing
through many lenses -
in silence candlelit,
and knowing glances
of a thousand Christs
who draw me to
that Source,
that Bread,
that Wine.
