11​/​26 | Interlude - I Found You

from Canto II - The Mixtape by Eric Washington



11 - Interlude: I Found You

I was very young when I found You. Still in my single digit ages. I remember the day very vividly. I was told about Your love and how You lived a life of no fault and still were able to lay down Your life. For those that did not deserve it.

I submitted myself to You and never looked back. I gave my life to You and did my best to walk Your path. Everyday I would fail and I would hate myself for it but still You loved me enough to consume my guilt, my self-hatred, and my brokenness.

Still now more than ten years later I find sadness in Your death. Though such a beautiful story we live in a world in which we are told we should find joy in Your death and its meaning, yet I find more guilt. This is not a guilt out of being ungrateful, rather it is a guilt of shame. You should not have had to die for me.

You were perfect, You had no fault in You and You spilled no blood. However You voluntarily allowed your own blood to be spilled.

However, I think we may have lost ourselves. We celebrate Your death in song and in sharing your life story. We should be celebrating Your heart, Your abundance of love in that You died for us when You didn't deserve to nor did You have to.

We should celebrate Your resurrection and Your loving sacrifice. In which the world does but we do so under this reoccurring theme: death.

We are told that death has been defeated, but we continue to dwell on it both in our lives and in Yours.

So yes, I mourn my King's death everyday and I feel guilty about it. However I find solace in His love, mercy, and grace.

Although I am grateful for His sacrifice, I am saddened that it had to happen because of us.

Although I am saddened because it happened because of us, I am grateful for His sacrifice.
