I SAW A MAN

 

I saw a Man
dress in white
and tired
in pouring rain
and the cold wind
climbing slowly
towards the altar
load of pain
of suffering
but also of hope.

I saw a Man
elderly
limping
take the many stairs
with on his shoulders
all the pain in the world.

I saw a Man
concentrated
in his silence
quivering
in his prayer
beg forgiveness
of all sins
of men
and their Salvation.

I saw a Man,
man among men,
rise
above all
and pray
for everyone.
I saw a Man
say
"nobody saves themselves"
because we are not alone

if we believe

in God
and in his Salvation.

I saw a Man
that,
with all the other men in the world,
will be saved
because he believed
and will believe
forever.
