palm sunday 2013

riding in
to jerusalem
with jesus
stopping to weep
over a city
that has forgotten
who it is

what lies ahead
on this journey
to the cross
sorrow and sadness
suffering and pain
crucifixion
death
burial
resurrection

asking myself
what needs to die
with him
what must be nailed
to his cross

all that is false
the passing self
who by its constant
inner commentary
continuously proves
that it is still
very much alive
within me
and must be
put to death

come
ride with me
is his invitation
come
to jerusalem
come
die with me
that you might
be raised
anew
