I Am

I am an afterthought.
The One taken for granted.
The ignored.
The assumed to be known.

I am your last minute scramble, 
A foolish man's gamble.
Your dismissed intended,
Or rather, an abused attendant,
But I am mankind's enabled defendant. 

I am walked over, talked over, given no thought over.
The Risen Begotten - a sacrifice long forgotten by hearts gone rotten.

And you, who double talk and double cross at will and with pleasure, 
Take all my gifted treasure.
Waste my wounded love...

For I will still love.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  (1 John 4:10)
