Worthy

You are worthy of my love and devotion.
Friends on the road, disappointed,
grief is their only outlet now.
Comes the stranger to walk alongside,
to prove all their preconceived notions
are wrong. "Have you not read the scriptures?"
It was all supposed to end so horribly,
so disappointingly because the
True one does not see in terms of earthly power.
Somehow we forget, thinking it is all their is.
Our own dominance blinding us to the
stranger who walks with us
Even when we don't understand.
He still breaks bread and disappears
in that instance of our knowing.
We, he is worthy.
None of the rest matters.
