Happy Easter

Happy resurrection day everyone! Today is the day we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ who God sent as a sacrifice to redeem mankind. This poem is about the love of God which necessitated such sacrifice.

Bittersweet

Brighter far than the noonday harmattan sun,

Higher than the snow-capped peaks of Everest,

Deeper far than the trench of Marianas,

Stronger than a destructive tornado,

More electrifying than streaks of lightning,

Much louder than a clap of thunder,

More radiantly beautiful than a summer sunset,

More fragrant than a big red rose,

Much sweeter than a honeycomb,

Whiter than snow,

So wonderful…..

Yet,

Painful:

           The deepest puncture wound piercing the tendons,

           The literal heartbreak of a spear,

           The shame of the skull place,

           Redder than the blood,

           Causing tears to cascade from heaven;

           Tears for a doomed race,

           For whom sacrifice was expedient…….

Painful:

       As a child brought forth cannot come

       Without blood, pain, or tears

       So is Love, Agape.
