SOMETIMES ITS TIME...
The time had come,
His Father’s will be done;
Death on the cross,
To the deceiver’s loss;

Yes, the time had come,
Great sadness for some,
Even the temple rebuilt,
Couldn't assuage the guilt,

When that time had come,
And he, left without a chum,
Raised spirit to the most high,
Forgiveness for sins did he buy.

  5. Gillena,

    The ultimate act, to lay down one's life for others; yet one wonders what else it would take, to halt the evil that lurks in this world today..Sometimes, it is never enough..
