Sweet Jesus

On the day our eyes open to the prism of the sun Winter solitude would be gone. The avalanche of differences melts into nothingness. Through the same breath,through the same soul We would live again as one,no matter who we are No matter what the colour of our skin,straight or gay Innocent or once guilty,rich or poor Lawyers,doctors,prisoners or peasants. No matter what our politcal believes,nor our different religions. A catholic,a muslim,a buddhist,a hindu or a jew. On that day we would all wear identical dresses We would all be the significant other,because He has died and He has died for all.Jesus died for Peter,John and Judah For lazarus, and Maria Magdalene.Jesus died for me He has died for you,for him,for her,and even for them. He shed his last drop of blood and painful cry for each and every name engraved upon his father's hand-palm. He was born to die,but its not death that we celebrate We celebrate His life,because we believe in life We celebrate His forgivness,because we experienced the beauty of forgivness,the serenity,the return of blissful joy. And we embrace the ever present love Because it is the gift of love that He bestowed on us. Jesus was born to die,but He was born to rise Upon death He Has risen,through His death we survived. Because of Him in the darkness,along the labyrinth of our night There will always be the little flicker of a candle filling our hearts with hope and warming light.

Sweet Jesus!!! That was touching. Loved the way it was expressed. I've kinda grown into your style now. And again it would be my absolute honour if you could read and critique on my modest new poem "An ode to my Mother". I tried a little something to gift my mom on her bday. Would love a little flare by you upon it. Fan, Always K.Ali

How I dream of a day when these differences melt away and the world, as John Lennon said, "can live as one." A very beautiful poem, especially for Easter. I hope your family has a wonderful holiday, dear. I haven't heard from you in a long time and hope you've been doing well. God bless you for writing such a hopeful poem. Love, Carolyn

You are so skilled at drawing the emotions from your words with dramatic effect. The flow and cadence of this poem adds to the sullen thoughts that are being projected by the author. I felt my way through your words and they linger still in my soul. Great work! Emile.
