Holy Problems

This is a concrete poem about “Holy Problems”. It was written in response to a Poetic Asides writing prompt at Writer’s Digest.


Holy problems

It was long ago
hung on a cross
and now we know
it was  unfair.
The  rules  were clear for those who’d hear.
And  on every day, you would see them stray.
Lord please forgive, so that they will live.
A  price is due.  And paid, by you know who.
A  perfect sacrifice,  cleansing every vice.
Not  His fault,
all our strife.
He  put a halt,
giving his life
so  we’ll  live
by  his  grace.
Now he’ll  give
All sin erased.
And  the  cost?
Faith  in  him.
Or all is lost,
eternal   grim.
