by Dave “Doc” Rogers

I sat
In survey of all
I had value
Worth
Position 

I fell
Seated below everyone else
Least of all
Debunked
Placeless 

I did
Making my own way
I labored in vain
To no affect
Resultless 

I was
In isolation I existed
No one to dress my wounds
No succor
Alone 

I cried
In desperate hope, anguish
A void within crying in hollow
Lost in ether
No echo 

Redemptio!
Redemptio!
Pater meus!
Redemptio! 

I died
The self ended, despair
The void stretched hopeless
Lost in death
No self 

I heard
A voice speaking
In my behalf, reasoning
Cost weighed
Price paid

 I lived
A kinsman claimed me
What was lost regained
In full returned
Missing naught 

I praised
Ransomed and revalued
Judged and doomed
Counted equal
Redemption
