Cross



Last supper
Apostles in order
One a betrayer
God the Forseer

Washed the feet
Apostles each
Objected the act
Act of faith

Swallowed the bread
Along went the Devil
Birth a curse
No crime worse
Judas Iscariot
His name

Denied by Peter
As predicted earlier
Not once but thrice
Only to later cry

Arrested and Crucified
Greatest sacrifice ever made
Tortured beyond belief
Son of God and a thief

Hes not god
Because of birth
Not the chosen one
Due to crucifixion

He is god for one reason
In agony and pain
Prayed to his father
Forgive the sinner
For he isn't aware
That he is the doer

No sacrifice enough
To gain immortality
Benefit of entire humanity
Founded Christianity

His life is his message
Follow his footsteps with courage
His door always open
His house and his heart

Love and Peace
Core of his teaching
Follow his preaching
Duty of every human being

Crucified and buried
Friday the day
Even in death celebrated
Christened Good Friday
Rose again
Sunday the day
Life celebrated
3 days later
Easter Sunday

In the face
Of nature's fury
Human unrest
For our souls to rest
On the Cross
Jesus of Nazareth
