“This is a collection of original poems by New Apologetics, reposted here from where it first appeared on our Facebook page.  Please continue to check our Facebook page for additional content, as new poems and prayers will usually appear there first. We include the poem here as an artistic representation of the theology of the Church as it has been, is, and always will be.”

Am I the only one aware
Of Death?
Icy fingers of it, wrapped in our affairs; in
Jokes, in
Stories, in
Seeming small matters; the dropping of an ice-cream cone, the loss of a beloved toy, the very realization that it itself
Is real
As if it were normal
As if it were
But nothing in me expects it (though I should dread it)
Nor believes (truly) that it will happen at all.
Ah, for the grace to know that Death is not
What I expect.



My fear of You
So ever-present
Has been replaced by love
By You
So much
That I discount it when it comes
As so much weakness
And I hold as little against myself
As You.



God rewarded sin
With Christ
To turn the first lie on its head
And make it true.



He took the cross that I was on
And laid it humbly God upon
His image fearsomely restored
Wounded creation, wounded Lord.



O come thou, Adam! Rise and see.
The fruit that was forbidden thee
Was borne upon another tree.
In My Nature, thou shalt be
Like unto God eternally.
