Joseph Campbell reflected that Jesus’ last week of life was a metaphor
that we can apply to what occurs in our own lives.
Are we riding victorious into the city, are we partying with friends,
Are we being betrayed and then crucified?
Or are we entering a new life, having come through the ordeal?
But the best metaphor of all
Is in those moments we are being nailed, inwardly or outwardly
Up on the cross, can we also hold love fully like he did?
Making a new universe,
One in which we always win.
