In the quiet town of Bethany
lived two sisters and one brother;
they were Mary, Martha and Lazarus –
people deeply loved by Christ, as none other.
Unexpectedly, Lazarus fell terminally sick;
begging that He not tarry and be late,
multiple messages were urgently sent
forgetting that we upon the Lord must wait.
To justify feelings of utmost despair
the sisters individually met the Christ
with their piercing hollow stares
resulting from sincere, unanswered prayers.
Lazarus, covered in linen with burial spice,
was four days dead in the family tomb
until personally called out by name
and exiting from his cryptal womb.
Being the Way, the Truth and the Life
Christ demonstrated God’s power on Earth;
not from Death did Christ’s tears flow, but regarding…
People’s attitudes surrounding Man’s rebirth.
