Death and Life: A Poem

Death and life
Dual realities of this world
Wisdom is recognizing and living in this truth

Death and life
The hope of the latter needed to endure the former
The victory of the latter swallowing the power of the former

Death and life
We deal with each the same way
Friends gathered, the table spread, tears of grief or joy

Death and life
Embodied in our Savior
The wages of this world, the promise of the one to come
