THE CURSED CROSS

To the Tree, He was condemned,

like a callous kleptomaniac.

Castigated and scorned by

a cackle of cacophonic voices.

Clamours and clanging...

clanging of corrupt tongues.

Away, they led Him to

the welcoming Cursed Cross.


For ages, this Cross has borne criminals, 

The condemned offenders that roamed the streets.

A symbolical structure of falseness, 

Of corrupt mortals punishing cursed beings.

The Cross welcomed a new Curse -- with ecstasy,

A quintessence now is being laid on it.

So many sins on this One crucified, 

A once-in-a-lifetime grace for the Cross.


Amidst pains; amidst sufferings; amidst hell; amidst the dead;

The Curse crawled along.

To Victory; to Redemption; to Rebirth; to Grace;

The Curse turned around.

Christ, He became, ascended into Glory,

And the Cursed Cross crossed over.

No longer a symbol of affliction, but, 

A monument of Grace that saves.


Galatians 3:13

Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:


HAPPY EASTER

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
