The Meaning Of Easter

By Lucy Wall

It was just after Easter 2013 when I felt inspired to write this poem. Over the month leading up to this Christian festival I witnessed various different statements and comments which I felt were a real reflection of how society is trying to omit Jesus more and more from our culture and nation.

The poem is intended to vary between humour and a more serious tone, sometimes with direct explanations related to Easter and other times with mere suggestions that will hopefully raise intrigue for further research!

My prayer is that it can be a reminder for us all to look beyond the fluffy chicks, chocolate eggs and cute bunnies and remember or perhaps discover for the first time what the true meaning of Easter is.
