Rejected

Despised, 
  not listened to,
    jealous religious leaders,
      Who thought they only knew the law
Betrayed,
  by his own,
    left alone,
      to bear the cross and shame
Loved,
  by the silent women
    his mother watching too
      to stand a silent witness
Scarred,
  a reminder of the pain
    not taken away or erased
      meant to be a reminder to us
Listen,
  can you hear it again
    we only heed our own way
      we nail him again to the tree
