Why Have You Forsaken Me?

Why Have You Forsaken Me?

A Poem by Sarah_Allen
"

"
JESUS OF NAZARETH, KING OF THE JEWS


Every time I bore your cross
For every nail tearing through me
The crown of thorns pierce my head
As the dice gambled for me

Broken and beaten by the world
As my suffering they did to you
Are we such lovers of pain?
To keep on pulling through?

The weight of the world on my back
As I lug this heavy cross
Tripping under the pressure it brings
Feeling it gain with every loss

Κύριε, Κύριε, το αίμα σου Bρίσκεται στα χέρια μοu

God, my God, why have you forsaken me?
You claim my chains are free
But now I'm chained beside you
Why do I follow thee?

The sign I bear above my head
They labeled mine like yours
The Pharisees come after me
Mocked me with the crown of thorns

With every pain in my life
More and more, I look like Him
Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
The Messiah, The King, My kin

I cant see why you wouldn't expect many views on this.
I found it really good.
A bit depressing but youre speaking of your suffering so it has to be right?

ah yeah, a bit depressing but they beat jesus so when they beat us up, we look like him i guess
The peace and freedom He offers is always there for the taking. That wonderfully healing oasis lies somewhere in the stricken scape of life. We’re lost and can’t seem to find our way there. Yet as long as Christ prevails in our spirit in some form, we’re near the right track Sarah.

A very well crafted poem, great word choice and expression. Keep penning such thinking and introspective poetry.

we find ourselves forsaken, and cry about it...and yet how often do we forsake others who need us.
i feel this is about more than just the crucifixion...much more...we all have our crosses to bear, but if we can find it in us to help others....maybe those crosses won't feel so heavy.
