Jesus abstracted

Jesus abstracted
in crucifix icons,
elevated to heaven in fairy-tale paintings
or Jesus the buddy making the show.
I know you are more
our blessed present Lord.

Jesus abstracted
in shallow faces,
playing the game that no one believes.

Jesus abstracted
in words of desire,
having our way we prefer not to ask.

Jesus abstracted
in relative culture,
following nothing give impulse the rule.

Jesus abstracted
in thought of theology,
making it plain we secure our comfort.

Hard to handle
we push you away,
abstract you from this very present day.

So, let the obedience brake our pride
not turning away
from the only one true,
helping our neighbor is honoring you.
