The Reckoning Ramifications of a Righteous Resurrection

When death began

It’s grip on man

A war ensued

A holy feud

Peace devoured

Love deflowered

Human waste

Murd’rous haste

Criminal hearts

Opposing parts

Faith’s eyes gouged by pride

The legged serpent crafty lied

Debauchery hypocrisy

Blasphemous misery

Love by hate was minimized

Lost hope epitomized

The chance to choose again too late

Death attained eternal state

No thought of sin to dissipate

The enemy’s demising bait

The King of Love assassinate

A day or two of victory

To lose the war eternally

Humanity is justified

The Resurrected glorified

Eternal life released for all

Repentant souls a globe enthrall

The love of God that stole the ball

Ensured the faithful never fall

Complete salvation to install

Righteousness to all who call

Who live by faith obedient

To them the gift of life is sent

For us the blood of Christ was spent

Religion’s prison to relent

Freedom calls with voice fervent

The Hand of justice grace-ways bent

The Law fulfilled to full extent

Come to Jesus

He Who’s freed us

Love the Father

Passion fodder

Spirit’s leading

Daily heeding

Questions answered

Sin is mastered

The Word infleshed

The Word in text

Freedom given

Bound for Heaven

Do not prolong the coming truth

Lay aside the lusts of youth

Deduce the evidence as sleuth

Die to live your life for sooth

Die to death to truly live

Complete completion He will give

Pursuing Solace

Picture of a sunrise over the sandstone mountains of Saxony, Germany

With ecstasy of highest thought,
Bequeath on me true peace.

Unlike the hopes that end in naught,
Bring joy exempting cease.

Great Maker, grant completeness sought–
Still solace, lacking crease.

Instruct this tort’rous husk infleshed
To cherish what You’ve wisely taught.

As slave of You, the kindest King,
For freedom in You I’ve been bought.

Though truth is hazed in visage meshed,
In scand’lous rapture I am caught.

As flame ‘neath sun, the dark is lost.
Righteous blaze, Love’s paid Death’s cost.

Deep rest, as lulled infant, envelopes my lot–
Delivered, enraptured, contentedness brought.

Lady Love


Lady love, sweet and bright
Forest eyes, soft with light
Honest smile, heart’s delight
Tender fingers, holding tight
Melodious song, soaring voice
True companion, grateful choice
Deep devotion quiets noise
Strength, emotion, daily poise
Divine arrangement, thankful heart
Lives committed not to part
Vows, unending, only start
Sweetest loving, breathless art
Lady lover, blessed man
Bound together, strong to stand
