“It is finished!”

Words spoken, No, shouted, from a death bed.

Following the pronouncement of having been forsaken.

Left alone, deserted, strung out to die.

Calling for a father who has turned his back

Unable to cast his eyes on a son so full of disappointments,


Broken dreams; shattered hopes.

What had become out of all that was possible.

And so, “It is finished” – signalling the end, the final deathblow?

But wait, one final move…

The twist occurs!

Hands are revealed

Pointing towards a long-held thought-out plan.

Victor is shown as victim

Vanquished emerges Victorious

In this new light “It is finished” is seen

Not as the loser’s last bid cry of defeat

But as a new “In the beginning…”
