Every time you sin
you are transported
to the foot of the Cross.
The quiet agony is there,
the smell of sweat, leather, earth, wood,
the taste of blood and tears.
Christ looks up and recognizes you.
Since you have been there before
He will not ask why
He knows.
He will not remind you of promises past
He knows.
He will not forgive you
forgiveness has taken place
for this sin
and so many others.
He will not give up on you
even in His pain
And that is your true agony
And greatest joy.
