Hoping For Resurrection


Hoping For Resurrection
By Brian Ernest Brown

on the back of an ass
riding into town
faint praise
turns to criticism
all too often


in a garden of woe
lies are the seeds
and betrayal
is the perennial bloom
thorns are treacherous


hanging betwixt
heaven and earth
suffering and forsaken
lost and alone
crying out

love and grace
the only gift to give
dying to self
and hoping
for a resurrection
