Like stars in outer space
That caress twinkling nature
& soothe darkened hallows,
Let me cuddle the simplicity of your passion.

Like the biblical samaritan
Who shared his love balm
With a plagued anonymous,
Let me gladden your innocence with care

Like a bottle which confines aqua
Preventing its spree of beut
Unto ungodly Niles,
Let me just have you as thoughts in my head.

I know I have defiled our creed,
Raping the nudity of patience.
I know I am an embodiment of pride,
Lampooning your love on the altar of indifference.

Please give me this chance to thread this tear
For I may seem a mature juvenile
But I am still an err filled human

The Good Samaritan, after Delacroix - Vincent van Gogh


  1. The Samaritans (or, as they prefer to be called, the Isrealites) believe their worship is the true religion, preserved by those who remained in Judea after much of the population was deported to Babylonia by Nebuchadnezzar in the 6th century BCE, as opposed to Judaism, which they see as having been altered by Ezra and taken back to Jerusalem during the reign of the Persian king Cyrus the Great. They claim descent from the tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh, who survived the destruction of the Israel by the Assyrians in 722 BCE.as well as from the priestly tribe of Levi; they used to include a line from the tribe of Benjamin, but it went extinct in the wake of the bloody suppression of the Third Samaritan Revolt against the Byzantine Christian rulers (529 CE). The Samaritans assert that after Joshua's death, Eli the priest ("50 years old, endowed with wealth and in charge of the treasury of the children of Israel," according to the 14th century historian Abu l-Fath) abandoned the tabernacle which Moses had established on Mount Gerizim and built an identical one in the hills of Shiloh, establishing an illegitimate priesthood under his own control; this marked the transition from the Age of Divine Favor, which began with Moses, to and the Era of Divine Disfavor, a situation that will last until the coming of the Taheb (Messiah or Restorer).
    Luke 10:25–37 recounts the parable of the "good Samaritan." A lawyer asked Jesus what he should do the inherit eternal life. Jesus replied, "What is written in the law? How do you read it?" The lawyer quoted from Deuteronomy 6:5 that "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, with all your mind," and from Leviticus 19:18 to love "your neighbor as yourself." Jesus affirmed that creed, but the lawyer persisted, asking, "Who is my neighbor?" Jesus told of a certain man who was traveling from Jerusalem to Jericho, a stretch of road that was so notorious fordanger that it was popularly known as the "Way of Blood." The man "fell among robbers, who both stripped him and beat him, and departed, leaving him half dead. By chance a certain priest was going down that way. When he saw him, he passed by on the other side. In the same way a Levite also, when he came to the place, and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he traveled, came where he was. When he saw him, he was moved with compassion, came to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. He set him on his own animal, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. On the next day, when he departed, he took out two denarii, and gave them to the host, and said to him, 'Take care of him. Whatever you spend beyond that, I will repay you when I return.' Now which of these three do you think seemed to be a neighbor to him who fell among the robbers?'" The lawyer, perhaps not wanting to credit a hated Samaritan with compassion, answered answered vaguely,"He who showed mercy on him." And. Jesus said, "Go and do likewise."
    Perhaps because Luke was a Christian from the Greek city of Antioch, rather than a Jew, he tended to present Samaritans sympathetically light, in line with his favorable treatment of the weak and of outcasts generally. For instance, of the 10 lepers healed by Jesus, only the Samaritan offered thanks (Luke 17:11–19). However, Matthew, a Jewish follower of Jesus himself, claimed (in Matthew 10: 5-8) that Jesus instructed his disciples not to preach in heathen or Samaritan cities, and even Luke (9:51–56) depicted a hostile reception there, prior to telling the parable..
