You took the blame, though you had done nothing wrong.
The verdict was blasphemy even though you told the truth.
Murderer set free. The innocent condemned.
The crown of thorns pierced into your skull.
They whipped you.
Shards of glass and nails ripping your flesh 40 times over.
They made you carry your own cross and then they nailed you to it.
Breathing is a chore.
Darkness in the middle of the day.
Freedom from your pain
You did nothing wrong
It was my death that was deserved
You took my place
My sins so vile increase every day
I am forever guilty
You are forever innocent
What a gift!
You beat the devil on his home turf.
You live and are no longer dead! Ressurrected! Victory no longer hidden.
How can I stay silent?
