Easter Poem

I wrote this poem in honor of the Easter holiday. I am a born again Christian, and the message of Christ's sacrifice on the cross is something I hold dear and am reminded of very strongly each year. The resurrection of Jesus is really the core of the faith, which is why I decided to write about it. I hope this serves as the token of hope and encouragement that is available to each of us if we choose to place our trust in Him.

Freedom In The Cross


Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017 with permission of the Author.

There's something that occurred
on that evening at Calvary
that created such a lavish stir
in all of history.

Upon that old rugged cross
our Savior bared it all
and offered himself a sacrifice
to overspread humanity's fall.

The sacred blood that was spilled
wiped clean the sinner's slate.
Christ paid the price for everyone
and carried our weight.

A willing heart endured the pain,
and purpose paved His way.
He opened the eyes of every man
To whom He came to save.

Though the tragedy of that day
will be mourned by those around,
our joy is found three days later
when He arose from the very ground.

And through that selfless act of love,
we were given new life in Him,
set loose from our bondages
to experience true freedom within.
