Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …


25 March 2014



set apart,

I ran before, yet

never asked to be followed.


I spoke,

illuminating truth,

a witness, a voice

heard in the wilderness

of what was to come.


Truth is double-edged,

declaring salvation while

proclaiming judgment,

and neither makes one popular.



is often martyred

on a silver platter,

but I must become less,

and the least

will be greater.
