A Holy Week Poem by Darcy
while reading the passion narratives this week
during this particular week
in light of all that is happening
and not being allowed to happen
because of being in isolation
losing a sense of time
realizing that this is Holy Week
I came into the garden
where there is anguish and woundedness
“Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you will not come into the time of trial.”
resounding loudly in my ears
Why are you?
Why are you sleeping?
Get up and Pray
Get up and Pray that you will not come into the time of trial
dropped to my knees
for we know not what we do
we know not how our actions harm others
we know not how our inaction harms others
in this time of trial
or how it is going to end
or what is going to happen
or where forgiveness will be found
Get up and Pray
that you will not come into the time of trial
words to heed
part of my prayer now
Looking forward to the Resurrection
