Warning: Religious themes, mentions of sexual abuse/rape, slavery, and racism.
The garden of Eden is full of snakes.
The holy churchgoers turn away the poor,
The abused, the women who have a choice,

Warning &A/N: This poem relates Easter and religion. The blog’s look and layout will continue to change for a bit, I’m still working on some aesthetic issues….I’ll let you guys know when revisions are done (for good!).
He is risen.
Rejoice and celebrate His homecoming,
His love has triumphed, once again.
Cast out the Devil, at least a few hours,
Finally, finally, peace resides in this house.
Remember the fallen, the defeated, and the weary,
Honor their courage, their kindness, their truth,
As we feast in His name.
Discover my words, my joy, my sadness,
Remember that Love always wins in the end.
Thank you, for all that you’ve done,
Never will you be truly alone.
