Emmaus

Were we so shocked and traumatised
that we did not believe
that you meant what you said 
when you told us
this temple will be raised just 3 days after it has been destroyed?

Were we so blind
that we did not see you
by our side
until you broke the bread and gave it to us?

Were our minds so dull
that all the prophecies meant nothing
until you patiently unpacked them?

Were our hearts so cold that we did not know you walked with us
until so much later?
Am I so tossed by life that your promises and life itself seem empty?
Am I so blind that I do not see you in every sky, tree or insect I pass?
Am I so deaf that I do not hear your voice in the wind and the word?
Is my heart so cold that I do not feel you by my side?

Every. Single. Day.

I believe. Forgive my unbelief.
