Where are you going and why are you going there

What is it that’s happening, and why do you care


Why do you go, what is the purpose of your quest

Too, with the mysteries of love and compassion, be blessed


Or to bear witness to a life, put to death, yet who forgave

While you were not there, you ran away; your life to save


By persecution and fear, your faith you spurned

Yet, in the caverns of your mind, it still burned


Your servitude, put in question by your cowardice

Is rewarded only, when you realize, you are powerless


Returning there now, that you’ve been confronted

To spread the word, while being pursued and hunted


Now, why do you go, and of what do you speak

To your death Peter, for those words we all seek
