and i wonder,
when did the leaving begin?
what did his father endure
before handing over sacks of silver?
murderous eyes turned on brother?
secrets harbored in the dark recesses of his heart?
hateful insults hurled toward those who loved him most?
how many times did the servants hear
why don't you just let me leave
they watched their master
close the gate?
that prodigal son
it's a kingdom story, really
one i know so well
i praise the one who watches
by the gate
bring quickly the best robe
when he sees me
