SAVIOR

jesus
was my bright
light
made holy
in my young mind
by whip and nail,
thorn and blood --
my rebel god, cast out,
betrayed and broken,
and it didn't matter
if he was made
of flesh or ether
but that he
hung in effigy
behind that alter,
humbled,
forsaken,
abandoned
same as what i felt
and that he promised
to set me free
and so i loved him
even when
my heart
knew better
