The three women who went to the Tomb on Easter morning are recorded in Mark's Gospel to say nothing. They were afraid and as first century women did not have the opportunity to find their voice in public.
Throughout our Easter Season, we will be hearing poetry from people in our society who we don't often hear from, whose voices are often suppressed.
Today a poem by Downtown Eastside poet, Henry Doyle (from Voice to Voice)
I write because my souls on fire
All my sins and fears are here
Its just another sick Tuesday
The middle of the end
When time stops and splits into two
You’ll find me there.
