Easter

On a day

celebrating second life,

I am thankful

for the rebirth

in Christ,

that, against all odds,

my leaves again

turn green.

Barabbas

I cannot

help

but to admit

that I am

Barabbas,

released

to an undeserved

freedom

at the Name of Jesus.

On Sacrifice

During those moments

of fleeting humanity,

I reject painful sacrifice,

but then I recall the truth:

it is my highest honor

to do something,

for my God,

that hurts.
