I C U

Intensive care unit
A place for the weakest and sickest
The nominal cost is extraordinary
The physical cost for many is their life
The sequelae tangible and far reaching

I see you
This walk of life is rupestrine
Our actions and reactions, while motives mostly noble, take on an internecine nature
The spiritual cost is questioned, dismissed, judged, feared
Our relations with one another compromised
We all fail and attempt to fix or repay
We establish arbitrary lines of morality in vain attempts to justify our actions
Self righteousness our payment, can’t cover the cost
Can’t cover the damages

I Christ You
Allows us to reconcile
With each other, Him and our own selves
Allows us to heal
Allows us to be whole
The cost was His life
The price is paid
