Christ On The Cross

The ultimate price of betrayal
No complaints
Or hints of sadness
Just words of wisdom
Through the shudders of pain

Torture
Hands and feet
Nailed fiercely to the cross
Not a sign of compassion
He is
‘Just another criminal’

Surrounded by mourners
Weeping, anguished
Bowing at his feet
Kissing them tenderly
His blood is shed

Mockery
Some stand back amused
Others ridicule him
Unaware of his true identity

Inflicting more pain
Both physical and emotional
Still, he shows love
“Father, forgive them, for they don’t know what they do”
