the choice He made

the choice He made

A Poem by Chuck

A poetic look at the last days of Christ, the things said and done, and how even the abuse pointed towards truth


Events that should have taken place,

But not as they had.


The words that were spoken were true,

But not as they were meant.


A crown should have been on His head,

Not of thorns, but of gold


A royal robe on His shoulders

But not to mock Him


Roman soldiers knelt before Him

But not in humility


Better for one to die, not all,

Truth from the high priest


But he was speaking of kept peace

Not of eternity


Declared as an innocent man,

By His judge and jury.


His blood be on our heads, they yelled,

And it will wash them clean.


King of the Jews, written on the cross

True, yet they knew Him not


He saved others, but not Himself

Was the taunt He heard


The crowds were finally correct

The one thing He could not do


Love beyond their understanding

Kept Him hanging there


He could not save both He and you

The choice had been made


Heavens most precious gift of all

Life for us by the death of the Son

Beautiful poetry Chuck. But I'd like to suggest the title you gave, isn't giving fragrance to your poem.
Your poem is worth accolades
But I think, if eye's are way to your soul, title is the heart of the poem. One seeing the title doesn't expect you to write something back in date.
So if your poem talks about back in date. Try to hint the reader in your title.
I'm not being rude, but your lines

"He could not save both He and you
The choice had been made"

This title will blossom your poem. And give you many views.
