Nor Do I Condemn Thee...
Joris John Heise
"Which laws create our chains as chosen bondage?
And how to see her passion in our petty pains
Which merely grab a grave and end in death?"
"My guess is her grossness wanted to get caught,
She got satisfied when punished from Jewish Law,
For death dealt her little different than her penned life."
They shamed her then with their legal game,
And made her pawn-play between two sets of males:
She, sunk in silence, sensed her value then, the lack of it.
But Jesus parried gambits with a nuanced wit
Way past their words wanting to stone a female crime--
To free her with the truth by his trust in worn-down ones.
We are her here, you known, our hurts sealed in semi-guilts,
While waiting here the shuffle off of games
Till some true Person ask and answer final say-so’s.
Our better dreams get out there in His embrace
That conquers all deadly laws, all verdicts made,
And by freeing words being gotten in divine forgiving.
