To Celebrate Resurrection


To Celebrate Resurrection


We celebrate our own resurrection

from filthy apartments in dirty town

from stifling dead-end jobs till sundown

a narrow alley of persecution.

We gather together in large number

we feel our communities uproar rise

in dance and praise of finding paradise

and bath in light of our new found wonder.

Who wrote these songs everyone dances too?

What starving musicians gave it their heart?

What match made in Heaven did they create?

As Mustard Seed took sprout our hearts they knew

our understanding finally took part

in coming together to change our fate.


All seek sunshine celebrating ‘The Lord’

every Sunday exit doors of Church

this treasure is not found to those who search

with faith we move into the unexplored.

The great and small will both sit at table

we all are humans and sing of our joy

such joy the Flames of Man cannot destroy

where everyone is considered able.

A chance to enjoy our humanity

through endless dancing and humble prayer

with laughing, loving, living our full lives.

To face all obstacles with dignity

to keep in mind people are in our care

until the end of time on Earth arrives.


Where all the dressed up people will homestead

I would rather avoid the louder crowd

avoid the noisy clatter of the proud

and curl up early in a peaceful bed.

To try to help community in way

that seems to wonder off the beaten path

be honest with the facts of Nature’s wrath

and create safety for children to play.

So let me crawl upon this mighty rock

where everyday I go to clear my mind

to investigate faith and ponder hope.

After evaluation I take stock

behind this setting sun what will I find

just ocean to horizon as my scope.

    Always seeking to improve ourselves, have faith in ourselves, and make a better life for ourselves and others is how we live life to the fullest. Great piece, Jamie. Well done.

    “Who wrote these songs that everyone dances too?” Yep…that’s what I want to know, too. Great work. Well crafted wording that takes a reader through a journey where we have to investigate faith and ponder hope. Written with true wordsmith qualities that only a Poet really knows how to bring. I will read this one again to get into the deeper aspects of it.
