a long way

Epiphany 1 - “Baptism of the Lord” - Year A

I’ve come a long way
Galilee to Jordan
takes intentionality
not to mention
time and energy

I’ve come a long way
and then I hear
I’m to give
what I came to get
and I say no

I’ve come a long way
now I have only one word
now is the time
now go ahead anyway
now now now

I’ve come a long way
did I mention
Galilee to Jordan
don’t try to get out of
doing your job now

I’ve come a long way
from Galilee to Jordan
from refusal to accord
from underwater to heavenly height
from be-loved to beloved

I’ve come a long way
Galilee to Jordan
isn’t so long any more
Jordan to Jerusalem
is now a longer way yet
