Faith

A Dark Day #Maundythursday

forest path

up a path fraught with malice

the dear savior walked

bearing pain human suffering

ugly jeers, rocks were tossed

love welled in His heart

for the lost, you and me

suffering He bore all sin

left on Calvary’s tree

cross

“He was despised and rejected2 by men;

a man of sorrows,3 and acquainted with4 grief;5

and as one from whom men hide their faces6

he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

Isaiah 53:3

The Face of Passion #poetry #photography

The Road Ahead

Passion led

 man’s life to spill

His love

on Calvary’s hill

Passion fueled

an angry mob

insults and rocks

cruelly lobbed

Passion moved

the earth to shake

 sky grew dark

bonds would break

Passion cried

 in a tomb he lay

night filled hearts

but we await the day

This poem is in response to the prompt at Verse First/Poet’s United. The prompt is “Passion.” I don’t often write directly on my blog of my faith, but it is what holds me up on good days and on the very worst.
