Valleys

Valleys (#2)

Down, down
We fell
Tumbling, falling
Refusing to heed,
Listen to
His Calling.

God encased in
Flesh
But only for a
Brief moment
For on His death
We were too intent

To listen to
His Words
Giving into evil’s
Dark voice,
Selfish desires, making
The wrong choice.

So, in that deep, black valley
We destroyed
God’s Shining Son
Oblivious, unaware
Of this, Heaven’s efforts
to rejoin us into One.

As His blood fell
To earth,
Beneath His cross
Satan danced in
Dark delight with
Screams of joyless mirth.

Thinking himself
The victor at last
at our final destruction
But once again
His mistake was
To forget his own past.

This Son’s body
Was raised again
to life in Glory
Rewriting, changing
Forever
Our not yet finished
Story.

So today, Christ’s followers
Still celebrate
A Glorious Golden cross
still shining its victory
over Satan’s dark valley
of defeat and total loss.
