This is the Christ

He may not have said the words
in their presence
only to the woman
at the well of Jacob
But they knew
what they did not believe
the words of John
in the wilderness
standing in the Jordan
so important to the people
near to Jerusalem
in Bethany by the waters
“This is the Christ”
this is what he said
they knew full well
no one else needed to say
he himself could be silent
else judgment, blasphemy
the words he could not speak
until the appointed hour
his time not yet come
because they would not believe
