No Poetry

An Allegory

Spoken Word Short Film by Jermaine Wong

An unfaithful bride seeks redemption and forgiveness from her husband but first has to hear some condemning truths.

God's relationship with the church is likened to a husband and his bride. Imagine if this relationship were personified.

What would the conversation be like?

Incredible. Such thought and authentic skill has gone into this poetry, it paints such an illuminated picture of the relationship we have with Christ. Your work keeps on getting better! Well done!
— Destiny Malcolm, aStepFWD
