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.
