Genuine Suffering

Profound abandonment
that moment of pain
genuine human suffering
the cry of our Lord
hanging, dying on the cross
Crying out to God
ancient words of the people,
the psalm, the lament

True separation from God
draped with the weight of our sin
Righteous, and yet
Forsaken by God
Darkness falling
curtain soon to be cut
Crying out to God
for his presence
in the emptiness
the suffering of the cross
