Hanging On My Own Cross

Hanging on my own cross
All things I’ve counted loss
Through my parched lips I pray
As darkness blights the day
“Father……Forgive them,
For they know not what they SAY.”

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    Well, we must not be too sensitive must we my little Desert Orchid. 'Forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us'. We can't expect Him to everythin can we, sometimes it's up to us. Take care, Richard

    This is a perfect expression to show exactly how you feel on those burdening days! It's sometimes true that people do things without knowing their effects on other people! I know that pain you express within this incredible poem my friend! What a masterful piece this poem truly is! Great Work!!
