Raymond A. Foss Poems

All to be Messengers by Raymond A. Foss

the wise men, the wise women
the story of Christ
from a modern perspective
told a bit in reverse
not the wise men,
not the king in Jerusalem

a young girl, an old woman
a widow in the temple
waiting for the Lord
each of them obedient
trusting in God
when the men folk
weren’t believing at all

in the telling,
from the female point of view
seeing the story differently
a different shade or hue
a role for each of us
if we so choose

following those before us
the angels and the weak
all to be messengers
each one of us with a story
a tale of power to speak

the love of God
come in that holy son
the one come to earth
the battle over death won
in the sacrifice on Calvary
all of our sins washed away
so that we like him
could face God some day
