Rest in Peace

A Poem By Clare Marie // 10/23/2009

 

Rest in peace, little one

Rest in peace

Your troubles are over, little one

Rest in peace

 

You looked death in the face

Little one

And did not flinch

 

Pain

Oh, the pain you endured

 

All because of your love,

Little one

Be not afraid

 

They talk of justice, little one

They talk of peace

But who, little one, noticed

When you suffered?

 

Pray, little one

You are safe now

 

Oh brave, brave little one!

How could you let them

Curse you

And beat you

Because you were faithful?

 

Blessed are those little ones

Who are persecuted

 

Your blood flows, little one

It cries out for justice

It carries courage to those

Who falter

 

It says Stand your ground,

Be like these little ones!

 

Perhaps, little one

It was not in vain

 

Your blood flows, little one

In ruby red rivers

Reflecting the glory of your King

 

Hush, little one

Sleep, little one

 

You are loved...

 

Rest in peace, little one

Rest in peace

**Written for those Christians in Uganda, Africa, who were martyred for the faith. Many were nailed to wood before they were murdered. One group were teenagers, and another group was set upon while they were praying in a church. This happened only recently...but somehow it did not make it in the news.**

So sad. Really sweet,

So sad. Really sweet, Clare.

It had a childish, open, vunerable feel about it, and it was lovely.

Brother: Your character should drive a motorcycle.
Me: He can't. He's in the wilderness.
Brother: Then make it a four-wheel-drive motorcycle!

Beautiful. So sweet and
