ELLIE,"THE POET IN ME"
BECAUSE IT IS EASTER
Not many will think that this animal, namely
the 'Chicken', that runs around in the meadows;
full of feathers that protect its skin, but
they do not give it enough strength to fly;
will lay something called "EGG".
You know what an Egg is.
The reason for the chicken to lay this Egg,
it is not for us humans to have a delicious
breakfast, but to create "LIFE".
To have baby chicks; so its species can
continue to live on, the way, we humans have
babies, so our race can continue to exist;
from one generation to the next.
The Egg, that its purpose was to give life,
has all the properties in it to build a strong
First of all, it has the shell to protect and
keep it worm, covered by the mother's body,
until it gets hatched, then, when the chick
breaks free from its shell, it was given the
strength to fight diseases that are found on
the ground where, like its mother will roam
free to forage for its food.
The chick is hatched fortified to survive the
elements of nature, found on its environment.
Such as bugs, poison wild flowers and seeds,
other bigger animals that might attack and
So, when we eat this bundle of protective
nutrients; that meant to create the chick,
our bodies get to be strong and protected,
the same way, they would have protected the
That Egg, rich of nutrients gives our bodies
all these marvelous properties meant for the
In other words our bodies have become
indistructible of the same diseases, the
chick was fortified to fight from.
Its Egg yolk, the doctor prescribes, when you
are four months after you were born to start
eating it. First in a very small quantity, then
your Mom will gradually increase it until your
stomach is able to digest the whole egg yolk.
The nutrients of this egg yolk will give you the
protective strength to grow up to be a healthy
person; that you are now.
The egg yolk has become an indispensable stable
among other kinds of foods we eat.
After you have reached the age of 6 or 7, you
only need to eat two eggs per week, on account
the yolk is pure cholesterol and it has 300
At that age your body already produces cholesterol
naturally and it does not need too much for you to
add. So, two eggs per week will give you all
these beneficial nutrients the little chick was
given by its mother the 'Chicken'.
I told you all this information for you to learn,
that when you break an EGG, LIFE comes out of it.
When the EGG is hatched this LIFE is a little
CHICK, when we break the egg to eat, it is these
nutrients we get to build our healthy 'LIFE'.
So, "LIFE' is hidden inside the egg.
This time of year the Christians celebrate 'LIFE'.
The Christian teaching says; Christ, after He was
removed from the Cross, He was placed into a
crypt(tomb) and his students pushed a big heavy
stone against its opening; so, his body could be
protected from vandalism.
The next day when the tomb was visited, it was
found empty, the stone was pushed out from within
the tomb, and Christ was not in it.
The teaching goes on to tell, that only Christ
could have done that.
The teaching goes on to tell, that Christ was
resurrected and had risen to heaven to be close
to his creator; "GOD; HIS FATHER".
The teaching goes on to tell, that when Christ
reappeared on the mountain to his students, HE
confirmed the stone incident.
At 'EASTER' time all the Christians are celebrating
Christ's resurrection, which says, he was sacrificed
to give LIFE to the world who believed in him.
Like the EGG, when we break its shell to get the
rich flavored and healthy nutrients from inside it,
what we get is 'LIFE'.
We make the Eggs red, because the red color depicts
'LIFE' and the egg is the most appropriate food-
staple that gives us 'LIFE', as Christ has given
'LIFE' with His sacrifice. HAPPY EASTER TO ALL.
Note: This poem was not meant to teach or convert any kid to Christianity. But as we have become a Global
Village, it is a good idea for all the kids to learn about other peoples' beliefs, for better understanding and tolerance.
Now-a-days multi colored Egg can be found at the stores. Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange. They are all Happy colors.
