    Jesus Why Do You Cry?

    I cry for the helpless and the meek.
    I cry for the angels who follow me
    I cry for the gentle and given heart
    I cry for the love that is given by my sons
    I cry the pain they endured
    I cry the lynchings of my sons
    I cry the murder, which they claim, in my name
    I cry for my children who come in love

    I cry for the blood, which flows, above my cheeks
    I cry for those who has died in my name
    I cry for the ignorance that eats the mind
    I cry for the homeless and the hungry man


    I cry that man has turned its back on me
    I cry that I continue to love thee
    I cry I died in love
    I cry that man would always love
    I cry for the evil of man
    I cry for jealousy the seventh deadly sin
    I cry that it is always jealousy and hate


    I cry that man has sold his soul
    I cry that they will never be see heavens gates
    I cry in the name of my father
    I cry that he forgives the blackness of the heart
    I cry that man has tried to defame my name
    I cry that he turns his back on my rules and commands
    I cry that he makes the same mistakes
    Repeat the history of the living dead
    I cry for the love of all man
    I cry for the purifications of mans hearts
    I cry for the gentle soul
    I cry man continues to repeat the same mistakes

    ASHANTA, this is beautiful and inspired.
    We cry because Jesus wept.

    Yes my brother we the brother and sister of Jesus. When men continue to look back and never look towards the future men continues to make the same mistakes.

    Blessings

    Jesus wept so we must weep.
    Jesus endured pain so we must endure pain.
    Yet his tears and blood redeemed us so that ours would not be in vain. Very thought provoking poem.
