A Death That Led to Birth

           A Death That Led To Birth

It should have been enough to cure disease,
But yet, there is a nature hard to please
That even when a malady is healed,
Some insufficiency is soon revealed.

It should have been enough to feed so many
With very little food and still have plenty
After all the hungry had been fed,
Yet something in a soul needs more than bread.

It should have been enough to preach the Word,
The Word was God as told to those who heard,
But in the heart and soul of mortal man,
He also hears he can’t, although he can.

It should have been enough to calm a storm,
To walk on waves where feet do not belong,
To change a jug of water into wine,
But, senses are just senses, not divine.

There had to be a death that led to birth,
It had to happen in our world on earth,
And when He took our evil, bled, and died,
His Spirit rose and lived to be our guide.

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
