Poem about Spirituality

Easter Love And Hope

This poem by me David J. Herring is about Easter, and my experience of hope after many years of illness which I still suffer from. I believe in healing, and try to follow Jesus' words of love every day, but I know that life is never ideal. He brings us hope, which we can reflect to others who suffer, and reach out to, and receive from them. I believe His love brings healing into our lives when we have failed, as we all do, and all shall be well when we trust Him for the future. He understands.

He Is Risen

Imprisoned fast I lay: long years of pain;
Yet hope and joy live still: they will not die.
Was I, or was I not, the one to blame?
There is no answer, even from on High.
But One once stood alone, in Pilate's hall;
Blameless, He faced the stubborn crowd, condemned.
Yet as, for me, He drank the bitter gall,
His love covered my sins, and called me friend.
And day by day, that love's the golden key
Which unlocks cells of pain, dungeons of fear,
And shines with joy, as prisoners are set free,
Their chains shattered, as His words they hear.
For Easter brings new life: 'twill NEVER die,
And Love Himself is all the reason why!
