Alone

In my mind’s eye, I see the humiliation of you.
How you endured all that hatred of the world.
As we sinned in glorious splender, with much to do
You silently suffered and hurled
Us towards salvation, as each hammer blow made home.
Piercing tender flesh, each nail became part of you.
And you were alone.

In that moment called Calvary
I saw you my loving Lord.
In my mind’s eye, on that glorious tree.
As you made all things new my Lord
And I was able to be
All that you told me, my Lord.

But still, you were alone.

Poet’s Note:
This poem is about the desolation and loneliness of Jesus on the cross. Even his Father had abandoned him. Yet he did all that for us.

I'm married, fifty seven years of age with two grown up sons. I work at the local railway station in customer service. I have always enjoyed writing poetry and short stories but for the past twenty years I have not written anything because the stream had stopped flowing and had all dried up. Lately someone had admired my recent work and opened up the log jam that had been there all that time and let the stream flow again. It is a great feeling and release.

Oppressed And Alone

Oppressed And Alone short poem

My boo boo what have we become, I’m so depressed an all alone. I’m desperate and somewhat oppressed, What’s a man to do when he’s distressed. Try to touch you but to no avail, All my efforts are quickly unrailed.

There is no question. There is no need to teach me a lesson. No one likes me. This is why they leave me be. How do I know? I have neither friend nor foe. They sit in groups, And leave

Let Me Die Alone In Deep

Let Me Die Alone In Deep short poem

Let me die alone in deep, Perhaps, I may take a breath, Don’t see me with hate and hope, Perhaps, I may live. Since, thee don’t know my pains, So, have not a jot of rains, I have a lot
