Expectations hanging on three nails,
Tortured, mutilated, and crucified,
Spit on, mocked, and humiliated,
All reward for believing the impossible,
Gone, thwarted, frustrated,
Disappointed, checkmated, and lost,
Death stole the prize,
We saw you swoon,
We anointed your body,
Watched the stone rolled over to eclipse the light,
We celebrated a desecrated Sabbath,
Based on what evidence could we
Call a wound a blessing?
A Cancer a cure?
A death a birth?
Is there anyway we could still
Evidence says no,
We are sickened to hear it again.
Review the facts,
Follow to the same conclusions,
Again and again,
Faith says dare to believe.
Look up, look forward, look again.
Despite the betrayal,
Despite the theft,
Dare to call the end a beginning,
You must be alive somewhere,
And you will find me,
Waiting, praying, crying out for you.
Outside the empty tomb,
On the road to Emmaus,
Next to my loved one’ s grave,
Because you told me
Never to give up
I can not afford not to
