Advent Through Poetry Day TWENTY-TWO(Treasure)

She treasured all these

things

in her heart. 

These promises that 

her child, her son

was messiah. 

Chosen

one. 

She treasured up 

with joyful praise

these words

that made up

for darker days.

Days where

she knew not

whether he would kill her

whether she’d be stopped. 

Days where

close friends

said

I do 

not

know you

you worthless 

cheating

unclean

thieving 

undeserving 

undiscerning

unwanted

outcast

of

a

harlot. 

And there is says-

Before 

Our

Eyes-

that she

after hearing

the news

Quietly pondered these words. 

She treasured all these things

All these things in her heart

after all she’d been through

I’ll bet she did. 

Whether people believed her

or people did not, 

She still had these things

in her heart they were caught.
