The Crucifixion Of Life - Poem by Jocelyn Sumido Dunbar

The life struggle, adversity, sorrow,
Pain, broken life, hurt, heartache,
Wounds, diseases, anxiety;

People that gives trouble, our burden;
Things aren't what we expected, desperation;

Our aching, weary, tears that flowing,
Experiencing to the system we have
Day by day, in some other way,
Smiles, laughter, beauty that we have
Inside in spite of difficult condition.

Ohhh! the expression of our every
Breath that we inhale and exhale.
Our eyes that cry when we are in the
Midst of pain, our thoughts that smile
When we experience beauty things.

Every steps of the way, walking in the long
Journey carry the cross, we feel
Every bit of affliction so much, so deep;

I cannot imagine or express how hard
It is in the journey of life.

We given wings to fly, the faith that moves us,
Belief that we can hold on to.

We are not permanent in this world
All things that we suffered for life is
The fundamental experience to others, the next generation.

The peace and beauty that we are longing for in
Silence, at last it restful place.
