Tired Jesus


If Christ was alive,
fleshed out right before your eyes
Will he be black?
Will he be committed to perfecting his swag?
Will he judge?
Smile in your face and behind your back paint you black like a hypocrite?
Will he condemn? Will he ostracize the gays?
Will he shove the word down your throat? Or in a subtle nuanced way press you to join the boat?
Will he equate Facebook likes to your chances of making heaven?
Or will his refusal to share Christian posts make him a heathen?
Will he carry an std?
Or do I blaspheme daring to put Christ and sex in the same scene?
Will he finally have pictures of himself captured saying cheese?
Or will he precede his every word with a please?

Christ on a billboard
Christ on the bare streets
Christ sang in hiphop
Christ in your every deed
Christ on a big stage
Christ on a dope car
Christ remembered only on sabbath days
Christ on the lips of boys in between thighs on a sofa
Which one of him are you?

Will he groove with the hommies
Or will he disapprove and call them unholy?
Will he teach them how to pray
Or will his rod be the way through which we can see his face?
Will he speak in tongues on the regular?
Chanting down Babylon in any random space?
Will he still be a carpenter’s son, sawing wood in the hood?
Will he wake up daily staring down at morning wood?
Will he be a humorless boy with no time to play
Dedicating his whole life to the ministry and chastising everything you say?

Christ on a billboard
Christ on the bare streets
Christ sang in hiphop
Christ in your every deed
Christ on a big stage
Christ on a dope car
Christ remembered only on sabbath days
Christ on the lips of boys in between thighs on a sofa
Which one of him are you?

  1. he’ll groove with the hommies, like he did with Zacchaeus; teaching ’em a better way.
    Sent my mind on a thoughtful wander, Asantewaa.

  2. Very inspirational. A call to us to reflect on our relationship with Him. Examine ourselves and see if we are in the truth. We owe that to our souls at least. Thanks Asantewaa for sharing your thoughts with us. I deeply appreciate this.
