You win, I win, and we all win.

In history I see
You were hanged on the cross,
that was built by political hand,
"Oh woman, behold thy Son."
On that cross you've won. You win.
In storm I see
Your leafy petal fell,fruit crushed,
trembling in riotous gushing winds,
but still, your blossom glowed
in a bitter smile. You win.
In world I see
vultures fly,wolves hunt in pack;
dough kneaded by powerful hand,
grape ground for the rich's wine,
But your word speaks to my mind.
In darkness I see
Your body were wrapped in shroud,
buried in tomb, covered by stone,
All secrets of unjust were sealed,
But morning light will break the dark sky.
In sleep I hear
Your ageless shout in silent present,
Slave to be free! Dream to be true!
As my hero said: "I have a dream..."
That one day we will all awake.
You win! I win. And we all win.
The power of God is in His love, mercy and forgiveness.
I have to remind myself when I put down words,
but I also have to be frank and truthful,
coz I don't make poem, but sit and capture,or receive.
So there are some part of this poemprayer I do not like,
and could not take them off coz I also need to be truthful.
I hope those will forgive me if I offend anyone by calling names.
