How can you love
with the ferocity of God
if you have not wept
for all that is broken
and lost
in the world?
How can your heart
be His
if you have not been cast as bread
upon the dark waters
of suffering and pain?

You shall be poured out
upon the sharp rocks.
You shall fall like rain
upon a ground that is thirsty and dry.
You will die like Jesus
upon a cross,
and your heart will be pierced
by a spear.
