Or a Roman cross,
Is a coin that's tossed, in history's
Carrying Adam's seed, yet crowned with
Perhaps not dismissing the tree,
As a living entity.
As man's belief that foreshadows grief.
On it's broad shoulders carried humanity.
Justice served- to save a corrupt race
Evidence withers- sawdust mingled with
I ask, how much did this tree perceive?
Grasped perhaps, beyond what the world believes. As the first to thirst,partaking Christ's passion.
To become one, in the embarkings of fury
In wait to be acqitted by humanity's jury.
May I test to suggest, to indulge more
Could a tree be an altered device of death and misery.
Be that guide, as the one path preceeding eternal life?
Atoned - in God's grace alone, be rooted
And latter be known as the Tree of Life?
