I Wonder....

“I wonder if Jesus could feel his heartbeat

In his throat, the way I do when I’m afraid.

I wonder if he had to take deep breaths,

In through his nose, out through his mouth,

Tricking his body into a state of calm.

I wonder if he was nauseous, like I am

When I’m headed into a hard conversation.

I wonder if he had to summon his courage,

Tucking fear away so that he could hold onto

What mattered most with both hands.”

— Excerpt from “Peaceful Protest” by Rev. Sarah Are
