Love Poem: Holy Week

Written by: Kim Merryman

Holy Week

waving palm branches
people shout hosanna -
Christ the King has come

the Passover feast
preparation of the lamb -
Jesus' last supper

a time of prayer
Father, not my will but yours -
betrayed by a kiss

angry fists are raised
crucify! crucify him! -
hatred replaces love

Christ nailed to a cross
the Holy One rejected -
perfect sacrifice

the empty grave mocks
God's only son conquered death -
Jesus is alive!
