He

source

Born He was

Born He is

Born will He be

Among all races

Again and again

Will bear the cross

Bleed, be killed

By His fellowmen

His only fault being

Loving them

Teaching them

To be Men

We will make Him a god

After the deed is done

  2. Indeed! Powerfully written! It sounds like a cycle of nothing but death in exchange for love, but we each must be willing to take up that cross too for change to occur. Our own cross, not His. Bless you, Sumana..
