    looking down upon the shadow before me..
    trudging steadfastly towards the hill...
    sweat stinging my wounds inflicted by
    splinters makes the journey unbearable...

    it's difficult to see through the sacrifices
    pouring into my eyes from the razor sharp
    crown, back bending from the weight of
    the beam and yet, my spirit is still intact...

    I must complete this walk, the path laid
    out before me for I know that with each
    step, another generation is redeemed;

    the crowds shout at me, cutting and
    tearing at my heart; little do they know
    this is done for their protection.

    I reach the conclusion, collapsing from
    pure exhaustion, thinking the path is
    complete yet the task is undone... my
    journey will end when the debt is paid....

    the score of blind rage tearing at me
    like rabid dogs, hunting me like a
    lamb that strayed from the pack
    (do they realize, my stray was by choice)

    could they not see the unblemished coat?
    white and pure like the driven snow could
    they not see that others like me were the
    scapegoats for their incredulous activities?

    I, sinless and innocent, against the
    hunters, led by their master, the ruler
    of pestilence and sin with his Trinity
    of Iniquities laughing from below;

    I rest as they drive HARDENED HEARTS
    into my left wrists; HATRED into my
    right; LUST and DESIRE into my feet,and
    pierce my side with surgical sharp DOUBT;

    ARROGANCE, CONFUSION, GREED, REJECTION, PERVERSION,
    CORRUPTION, ADULTERY, pierced my head, reminding
    me of why I stand on bent knees upon this pole of
    resolution, watching the title paced upon my head

    "THE KING OF THE JEWS"

    I, Adam, last Adam, Alpha and Omega, Bread of Life,
    Good Shepherd, Lamb of God, Lord of Glory, Emmanuel,
    Son of Man, Seed of Abraham, Savior, Holy One Of God can
    rest upon the weight of my chore and look to the sky to proclaim,

    "FORGIVE THEM FATHER, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO..."

    the debt is paid, yet, the journey continues.......

    D....

    I had to take a minute and get myself together. And like Rashad... I can't even put into words what is going on in my head and heart right now.

    Thank you.
