Beauty In a cross

~ . ~

You want beauty.

At least that’s what you say.

That you are looking for beauty.

You ask me what beauty is.

I don’t tell you

About delicate dandelions

Or exquisite daisies

Or feathery petals

That used to be beauty

But not anymore

Now, beauty is

A cross

A wretched piece of wood

On a hill far,  far away.

A hill called Golgotha

A cross my saviour was nailed on

That’s beauty to me

A piece of wood

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, 

but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 

19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,
And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? 

Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

1 Corinthians 1:18-20
