A BOLD STEP TO GOLGOTHA


Some steps on water were theirs to confess light.
While devouring was the earth and air, theirs to swallow,
but shortly trodden by dint of it.
A dark carpet-fog
craved by dint of treason and treasure heat

then a step was engaged to approach treason,
soon to seed in reproach of him
where steps after steps were taken to jacketing
since craving for craving was them to tint.

So' a step in a womb; fearless to stay
with those professed to hail and hate.
O' fearless feet, fearless feet!
A bold step from their fearless feet.

Then a Bold step to Golgotha, stamped him down.
Subtracted to a dwarf, almighty man.
Whereby, Calvary not his height.
Given to Vinegar, scribes and sinners
and elevated to sky; there to stand.
Drafted with trees; blood-staring stars,
and all the witnesses hugging the ground.

What a step!
O' what a step!
What a step that took him to hell.
To torments, and distress, disgrace and delay
whose tournament was weak, so weak to detect.

But another step was taken.
Another step was taken, wailing to victory
with the wrestling of the enemies,
to praises in glory.
By a last step fearless
to reign on earth.

    This is a big, bold poem on a very powerful subject. I think the verse about Calvary is especially fine. Well done. (Report) Reply

    Though people like me believe that Christ was crucified because of a bad judiciary of those times, whenever poets like you speak about the goodness Christ had obviously possessed in abundance I am transported to a world of acceptable mental bliss at times as the glory that you refer to was instrumental in carving out a system of life so beautiful and peace giving in these times.
    Anyways, it is a good poem from true Christian like you who is unaffected by the doses of other dogmas. A good write brother Ebi Robert.. (Report) Reply
