Forsaken is a 5-octave, unaccompanied marimbasolo. The piece draws its inspiration from the biblical verse, Psalms 22:1 “MyGod, my God, why have you forsaken me?” and the same verse quoted by Jesuswhile he was on the cross in both Matthew and Mark—"Eli, Eli, lamasabachthani?”. This is one of the last seven sayings of Christ before his deathon the cross. Some will interpret this saying as words of Abandonment of theSon by the Father. God has left his son to die in pain at the hands of humanityas a sacrifice for their sins.
