Love is life

Hate is murder is death
Shame - hopelessness - evil

This is myself, a hating and hateful monster

Love is resurrection is life
Courage - joy - truth

This is I AM, my loving and lovely king

His image, defamed by my ugliness
Is made radiant again by his sacrifice
This is renewal, this is restoration
His love is life.

I'll say it because I'd want someone to say it for something I wrote. I love this poem.
