Reflecting on the reason for Easter. The reason for Good Friday. And the reality of death in the light of these reasons.
As always, thanks for reading.
~ Death ~
What meaning can be derived from this concept so morbid
For reality is defined through its perceptions encompassed.
Vitality flees from its tyrannical plans
Hopes and dreams crushed when once placed its hands.
These notions require no wizardly sage
Nor scholar of legend to convince of their grade.
Life meets its end when challenged by this foe
Time meets eternity when their battle is o’er.
But once on a hilltop called Calvary
Just as this Death made its final decree
Claiming as prisoner the one Son of God
And all of earth mourned as it suffered the loss.
Yet still of the truths that death entertains
And the brutal finality of its desperate game.
Still once taken captive and crushed to the grave
The Son of God rose and put death in His place.
Death itself conquered by God is now dead!
It’s reign of terror crushed in the end.
The chains truly broken, the prisoner freed
And pain once the token from all of our deeds
Now makes obeisance for it’s God holds the key
And death is no match for its Maker and King.
