that he knows no one will hear
he must face this time alone, this time of yearning, knowing death is near"
When you're a Christian, all things may be true or untrue. The truist truism can be laid false with mindless, heartless repetition, the most secular song or poem can be inverted (sweet inversion!) when Christ grabs and nails himself to the secular symbols of life and death. Perhaps no one (other person) will hear. Perhaps he is alone as David, or Abraham before. But the self soothing, the wall plastering of our minds with brilliant memory, the act of recombining, of comparison and grace soothed logic, this is our inner strength. Where lies become true, and intended harm is no such thing even the worst of symbols - inverted - spread like butter, covering the heart and mind. No one will hear no one will hear no one will hear no one will hear.
