Weekend Worship—Prince of All

Spring is just around the corner, and with that comes Easter. Today I'm reposting one of my poems. I think we all need an occasional reminder that happily-ever-after ISN'T just a fairy tale.

Once Upon a Time
by Edie Melson

Dust & ashes
Filthy rags
Hateful masters
Ugly hags.

Aching heart
Wishes made
Things changed
Rules obeyed.

Pretty clothes
Delightful gathering
Striking clock
Hope unraveling.

Life abandoned
Party fled
Dream denied
Future dead.

Broken heart
Determined prince
Kingdom searched
Message sent.

Trail followed
Captive sought
Desolate found
Freedom bought.

Lifted up
Life redeemed
Carried away
Fulfilled dream.

Fairy tale
Cosmic joke
Cruel lie
No hope.

Jesus Christ

Heard my call
Paid the price
Prince of all.
