A little piece of me: I could be very vainglorious but I constantly remind myself that the source of my life is CHRIST. I CHOOSE TO EXALT HIM WITH MY POETRY BECAUSE IT IS A REMINDER THAT HE IS THE SOURCE. I believe that JESUS IS PERFECT THEOLOGY. I pray that this poem reveals you in CHRIST and CHRIST in you.
DO YOU UNDERSTAND THE CROSS?
The angels stared in wonder
Across the galaxies there was a quiver
It was beyond all expectations
The grimmest event since the earth’s foundation
The tears of Jerusalem’s wives and mothers
And the spikes driven in fiercely by the roman soldiers
Formed an eerie symphony as eternity
Watched a man killed who was either mad or a different breed of divinity
Raucous laughter rose from among the rabbinic rank
Mary looked on, her sturdy heart sank
They were mocking her baby, calling him a liar
He hung on a tree – Yeshua son of a carpenter
Worse than the whacks of the roman whip
It was more excruciating than the pain of seeing Mary weep
As the earth tossed and turned
The fires of hell raged and burned
Then it began – the reason for it all
A plan that had been in motion even before the fall
In a frenzied rush, all sins raced to the cross
Sickness, sorrows, all were sucked in by a divine force
Death and hell shuddered at the very thought
They had been hoodwinked by Adonai’s plot
They latched on to the ‘madman’, the ‘fraud’
The one who claimed he could give the Spirit as a reward
Humanity’s sins past, present and yet to come
Made the charlatan’s bruised body their home
Eloi! Eloi! He hollered at the heavens
Lama Sabachthani! the son forsaken??
Behind the veil hidden from mortal sight
All sins were forgiven, swallowed up Emmanuel’s light
At the foot of the cross the centurion stared in wonder
“Truly HE is the Son of God …”
JESUS – THE MARVEL, THE WONDER!!!
