Horrific Beauty

First
an instrument
of torture,

Then
an instrument
of love.

First
a place
of defeat,

Then
a place
of victory.

First
a symbol
of shame,

Then
a symbol
of glory.

There
is a horrific
type of beauty

in
the
Cross.

  1. so true, I have mixed emotions whenever I wear my cross necklace. I usually don’t wear it because of that. Beautiful true words…”there is a horrific type of beauty in the cross.”
