Bewildered by Raymond A. Foss

standing there
cloaked in sadness
the rich man before the Christ
unable to follow

Following the ancient law
the letter yet not the spirit
challenged by the ties that bound him
unwilling to let go of his possessions

Watching them go
the disciples, those who would follow
left with his false piety
and surrounded by his things;
sadly, with rewards here alone
