The Mark Above My Brow
By, Hugh A Tague III
The mark above my brow the symbol of life a smudge of admiration.
A reminder of sacrifice freely given a celebrated life of love and understanding.
Forty days and nights the serpent torments tempting resolve defeated he returns alone.
Winter’s cold wind the ashes chase away the triumphant light returns palms are laid.
From the dust life begins to burst then as ashes we return to the earth.
A smudge of admiration the symbol of life the mark above my brow.
