Resolve

The crowd egged Him on
but He never cracked
Pilate put pressure on
but He didn’t blow His stack

He knew what lay ahead
but never shied away
The hardest cross before Him
but nothing made Him sway

He knew He’d rise another day

For Quadrille Monday at dVerse Poets Pub, where the word of the day is egg.

    Perfect for the Holy week and Easter Sunday!

  2. His resolve almost makes it seem ridiculous when we use that word as applied to our own earthly endeavors. Thank you for this poem, Linda.

    A statement of faith within the clever response to the prompt! Well done.

    • I had resolved this Holy Week to make every poem about the events of the week. When I first saw the prompt, I didn’t think I’d be able to, but am thankful I was wrong. 🙂

  8. Love this Resurrection poem!
