one of you – v2

I can remember so clearly
now, in reflection,
how we all froze,
how we lost our hunger,
at these words of Jesus
as we sat around the table.
“One of you will betray me;
Peter, you will deny me;
all of you will run away.”

these words to chasten,
to wick the excitement
what joy we had
in the upper room
then silence fell upon us
contemplating these words of Jesus
how we felt, especially in reflection,
horrified at what we had done,
knowing all the words were true.
