THE SHADOW OF GOLGOTHA

By Paul Curtis

Our lord beaten and bloody

Sent to die like a criminal

To add insult upon injury

Atop his tousled curls

Was set a thorny crown

Pressed into his scalp

He carried his cross

Upon his bloodied back

Through narrow streets

To the baying of the crowds

Then onto the hill of Calvary

Where the prince of peace

Was nailed to his cross of pain

And dealt the final blow

His side pierced by a spear

His earthly life ebbing away

Through the open wound

He called out to God

But not for vengeance

He asked that they be forgiven

And his cross of pain

Cast a Holy shadow

Across the world

That reached every corner

But the shadow cast

Was not one of darkness

But one of light

A divine light

The light of love

Which still shines today

For it is the eternal light of God

I am a fifty something family man with a passion for writing and I draw inspiration from those around me.
