Martyrdom

I walked out I walked towards a house of horror And ate at its gates for many years They gouged out my eyes And made me bleed rivers of blood from my mouth They drove six large spikes into my skull So as to affect my mind with horror They dragged me listless and faint through a dark street And crucified me on a steel beam By welding my risks and my ankles to its scaffolding I hung there while I was alive And when they discovered that my body could not stop producing blood like a river from my eye sockets And from my gaping mouth They electrocuted me And I disappeared from my steel crucifix To wander the universe with God I still wander the world to this day And when I ascended like my Lord From out of my invisible tomb I did not smell of smoke from a furnace Therefore my oil is as clear as water And it flows like gentle wind Singing in a tempest The martyrdom of Hineni Amen
