one side, trapped. God in heaven on the other, yearning, waiting. Man separated from his creator, his life at best mundane, loathsome at worst. One day man realizes there might be more. At the
of himself, he
of his land
and stops at the
point where it drops. He gazes out at
the dark. Staring hard, he
sees a light,
though further than he could have fathomed. He thinks he knows what lays beyond,
but knows too, he’ll never reach
to go, defeated, doomed
now to nothing more. Head
down, he walks, tears falling, heart questioning, “Is there really no way?” Looking at his filthy clothes, his
soiled hands, he
knows. He can never enter that far off light after living in the dark.
And so, poor and hungry, he
sells himself to
the only world he knows, taking what he can get.
Until one night, alone, he hears
a tapping at his door. In his doorway stands a man who claims to be his brother, says he has bought him back, redeemed him. Man looks eye to eye with man, with God, and chooses. In flesh there stands a way, a bridge.
