Martyrs

We love our martyrs
Who die
And leave lives
That bring glory
To God

We also love our martyrs
Who live
And say
Through this suffering
God be praised

But what to do
With the other martyrs

Who are alive
But wish they weren't

Who don't
Praise God for the pain
Though they
Think they should
And others
Are just waiting
For them to do so

Or who do praise God
For the pain
But don’t
Feel praise
In their souls

Half dead martyrs
Living half dead lives

Who struggle
To reconcile
Pain with God
 
Because the pain in their souls
Doesn’t fit
With the God in their hearts

And the pain
Hasn’t killed them or
Made them more holy
 
And no one
Wants to hear about it
Until it does
