Swallowed Up

Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. 
1 Corinthians 15:54

There are few thoughts as comforting as this:
death cannot overcome us.
When it is swallowed up,
it becomes something other than what it was.
It becomes a seed
covered in the ground,
waiting silently
for the signal to rise again,
to bloom and to fruit.

Death no longer
is our destiny.
