Reflection: After the Crucifixion

Here’s a thoughtful reflection for the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  It was written by Rachel Hackenberg, and posted on Rachel G. Hackenberg.

Reflection for the Saturday after Good Friday

Is it better
to have not been born
than to know this vacant day
when hope has died
and life is silent?

Is it better
to have not been born
than to walk in a world without love,
than to remain in a night
that has no dawn?

Is it better
to have not been born
than to be forsaken by God,
abandoned to evil,
left to be dust?
