Starving for life,
Unbeating heart encased in stone.
Dying of thirst,
Afraid of pain yet suffering alone.
New pouring out,
Rock gives way to writhing flesh.
The curtain torn,
Dust and holy breath renewed afresh.
Morning overcomes the grip of night.
Darkness unable to contain the light.
Restored to rights,
Hope arrives; fluttering on the dove.
Victory realized; unconquerable love.
