Hope Restored


Beautiful, clean, pure.

The joy of two

Joined as one.

Joy fulfilled.

Ecstasy from Heaven.

A man and a woman

Together, complete.


Ugly, dirty, polluted.

The lust of many

Seeking for self.

Despair, complete.

Bondage from hell.

Men, women, many

Confused to death.


Joy, forgiveness, cleansing.

The purity of One

Dying for all.

Hope restored.

Freedom through Christ.

Anyone who believes,

     Alive forever!

S. Aken
