Judas. Hannah. David.
Abigail. Paul. Peter. Pilate.
Naomi. Thomas. Sara. Jacob.
They all faced failure
And responded in different ways.
Judas couldn’t go on. Hannah prayed.
David said sorry. Abigail hatched a wise plan.
Paul admitted his ups and downs.
Peter wept and found a new start.
Pilate washed his hands of it.
Naomi tried to turn bitter
And found help in a friend.
Thomas spoke his mind.
Sara laughed and got a surprise.
Jacob took some convincing,
Wrestled with his past
And eventually faced up to himself.
Humans. Disappointment. Failure.
We all have these things in common.
A shared language,
Not easy to speak sometimes.
But we are not alone.
