The stronger, draft no. 2

(Meditating on John 18:22)

When one of the officials nearby

slapped him in the face

Jesus, so kind so strong so solid

did not strike back

he asked him a question

weld words to split

soul and spirit


a better weapon

than fists could ever be

spoke only to heal

not bleed

Shan’t we?
