The Great Reversal


Gravity snowed your shoulders cold,

bent your burdened frame,

watched while troubles multiplied,

whispered words of shame;

Ascension climbed on trouble’s back,

chose the way of love –

soared above the blizzard where

forgiveness reigns above.

  1. A fitting tribute to Mandela. Was it him you had in mind when you wrote this? Such beautiful words Melody.

      I actually DID think of him – the ad for his new movie coming up was playing as I wrote. I think it has a lot of other possibilities, too – but that theme of forgiveness was pretty strong. Thanks!
