Good Friday Lent 2012, Most Holy Trinity Parish, Balic-balic, Sampaloc, Manila

even the innocent children came,

this sacred sorrowful Friday,

too young to carry the sins of the old,

and yet they dared to walk till the end.

lamentations echo in the hills,

lifeless body of the man on the cross,

carried by disciples outside the gates,

for the hills to pray once again.

the prayer for the dead,

murmurs of grief,

sacred mothers in mourning,

the long dark night begins,

to await the promised coming

of everlasting morning.
