Third Day

By Jonathon Phoenix (formerly known as Jonathon Franklin)

I have not forgotten
Nailed to a tree
A bad joke above my head
Red life mingling with earth below
I have not forgotten
The agony
Impotent rage
These holes in my hands
Constant reminders of what you did to me
But this is the seventy-second hour
And the rules have changed
The stone is gone
The tomb is empty
And I am risen

-Jon Phoenix
