The Prophet


These eyes … have looked into the eyes of God.
This mouth … has spoken real truth.
This heart … has felt the pain of loss.
This skin … has felt the burn of tar.
These hands … have wiped tears from a child’s face.
This soul … has borne the pains of martyrdom.
This man … has testified for all the world.
For a timid child to the highest of kings,
He testified.
