Scapegoat

This is no laughing matter, but rather more common than what most of us are ready to recognise or admit. Personally, I think it almost requires a process of enlightenment to gain awareness of this sort of thing going on around us, close to us and even to and from ourselves.  This has been the way since the beginning of time. Did not Adam say it was Eve and Eve say it was the snake? It might be normal, but it’s not grown from the soil of truth, because all it brings is blindness and heartbreak…. and then the opportunity for healing, hope and a different way!

 

Scapegoat?
Get away,
become an escaped goat

In days of old
it was not always so
the scapegoats often had to die

These days they survive
but carry scars
of experiencing relentless
shame, blame
criticize
ostracize
simply wrong
can’t be understood
not worth it
not enough
not good enough

This leads to problems
of course, how else
even scapegoats long
to be loved and belong

Thank God, thank Christ
since He took the blame
He turned the tide
on the fullness
of the sacrifice

but the culture still stands
and thrives
fear, shame, blame all rife
comparison, competition,
doubt, lust
it’s survival of the fittest
and survive me must!

And whilst the fit ones are surviving
the weak and wrong ones are
hidden from sight
where they learn the way of thriving

It’s a beautiful, wonderful
paradox
when you see it hear it feel it know it
It’s likely to knock off
your shoes and your socks!

Those broken, lost and wrong ones
were given opportunity
to struggle with darkness
and find the true light
The light of forgiveness
that heals and sets free
The light of illumination
eyes to see

It’s a choice for survival
initially
all wounds are not equal
some kill slowly or quickly
others just ache
continuously

New ways of hope
wings for flight
all the asking and seeking
opened senses beyond the five
the sense to know wholeness
the sense to feel loved

with that understanding
insight
into the unconscious construct
of how inherited beliefs
and behaviours
conduct
our present and future
happiness and homes

The ones
once lost
become the wayfinders
of healing and hope
a quiet revolution
more like evolution
take a walk
this way
discover the power
to break into
a brand new day.

Do you ever feel like there could be more to you and more to your life? If you can identify with what I’ve written or recognise what I describe, I’d love to hear from you.
