(Triumphant Rebound - A poem of Villanelle structure)

Triumphant Rebound 

He would never have accepted defeat,
Victory being his certitude we pray; 
Triumphant rebound He did complete. 

The woman knew As she washed His feet, 
That to save her soul He was The Way; 
He would never have accepted defeat, 

Paul believed while walking the street, 
That The Way was The Truth - it was clear as day, 
Triumphant rebound He did complete. 

He awoke Lazarus with a miraculous feat, 
For He's the resurrection and The Life we say ; 
He would never have accepted defeat, 

He is the way, the truth, the life with no conceit, 
He who rose Lazarus later to die himself - a ghastly display; 
Triumphant rebound He did complete. 

He died one day to arise in three with many later to greet, 
Many saw him and worshiped, as on the first Christmas day; 
He would never have accepted defeat, 
Triumphant rebound He did complete.
