"the passion should only be written about in tears"
as I silence sounds of the day
echoes in my heart
and bounces off the walls of eternity
Pilate again brings Jesus to the platform
in full view of the crowd
this crowd now infected with the gangrene of rumors
and what is this man Jesus thinking
about his accusers
about Pilate and his personal struggle
Pilate literally washes his hands of the outcome
as the mantra of the crowd rises to a fever pitch
"his blood be on us and our children"
your blood is upon me, Jesus
you invite me to come and be cleansed
your blood be on me and in me and over me ....................
