Man of the Sun. That was his name— ironic that he
had not seen the sun in many months, and would never see it again. A cruel joke of a name. But there were many cruel jokes.
People would listen to his every word with deep reverence. Now he was a laughingstock.
His fabled strength was only matched by his many weaknesses.
He was favored by God— gifted beyond his peers. Born to lead a nation, but now he had to be led by a child.
He embraced freedom that few of his time could dream of, but now was in chains.
He was so clever– none dare disagree. But now the cleverness is gone. He was established to be “the man of the sun,” but he could not bring light or life… only death.
And so all he could do, a final offering to the One who made him, was destruction— a sad yet fitting end.
