Blood flowed from his wounds.
Mixed with His tears.
Barely able to stand and support His own weight.
He was forced to carry the trees
for His own cross.
Ridiculed all of the way.
A crown fashioned out of large thorns
was shoved onto His brow.
He was still bleeding so much that the ground
where He and the soldiers were standing
became red with His blood.
His already battered and beaten body
had the bones in His arms and legs broken.
He was then placed onto the crossed trees
and was then nailed through each of His
wrists and ankles.
Once the cross was raised His broken body
began to hang low as He slowly began
to suffocate to death.
Jesus cried out once, "Father why have you
Jesus cried out again, "Father forgive them
for they are ignorant."
Jesus cried out a third time, "Father
I commend my soul unto thee."
With that, His head lifted up and back
and cried out with a mighty cry,
"IT IS FINISHED!!!"
His head then dropped and
He breathed no more.
His corpse was then carefully taken down
from the cross and neatly wrapped
He was carried from the place called
Taken to a borrowed tomb, His corpse was
Out of fear of His body being stolen and
His followers proclaiming He had risen.
The elders of the law had a great stone
place in front of the entrance
to the tomb, sealing it.
