A poem about the passion and spirit shown around Christmas time.
|The most blessed truth ever witnessed,
A bludgeoned and berated man
Facing the most vicious, hurtful,
And agonizing defeat –
For He laid there naked,
From head to toe,
In sheer, disheartening shambles
On that surreal and dreadful cross…
A sin to be reckoned with for sure,
For this was Our Holy Father’s decision;
That His Mighty Son must perish
So that we might extricate ourselves from sin,
Adhere to His Sacred Word, the Bible,
And enter His forever-resplendent kingdom.
Many celebrate Christ’s birth,
This joyful, gifted time
Known as Christmas,
While maintaining a wondrous passion
And enlightened respect
For this divinely spiritual holiday.
