The Rising

Easter is a fabulous time of year
Spring is in the air
Sun shines bright
Flowers bloom
It's feeling fresh

But something isn't right
For someone is dying, lying on a cross
He is in hell and no one can help
He is carrying the burden
The pain of our sins

But with death comes life
A sense of beginning
Renewal
Salvation
Starting over

The best part of Easter is...
Knowing he has risen
Born again
A man you can't put down

After your resurrection
You reigned for forty days -
Staying to deliver the promise
For you alone are the Messiah
Our Saviour
One branch of the same tree...


"I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

John 14:6

This developed after a fellow poet got in touch, wanting to work on another Easter-themed piece. I thought it would be impossible but then started to write about what Easter means to me. I'm agnostic but most of us know the story of Jesus & on a human level, it's a truly tragic event but in another way, we may have been set free to sin, knowing we will be forgiven.
