Tenth Way of Sorrow

Nobility and Strength brought them all to the mount.

They huddled together for the breaking of the Mothers Heart.
Anguish ripped her throat of voice.
Anguish drowned all thoughts of hope.
Anguish crushed her desire of being.

His garments stripped from his mortal coil!
The Man! Thrown onto the wooden scaffold,
Pain immeasurable - traversing every part of him.

The thunder like strike upon iron - tearing through his palms and feet.

Hoisted up...........................................

And he stood.
In his armour
his spear standing true
his stomach weak from all this pain
his heart weak from all this suffering
his mind weak from all the relentlessness

Each strike, 
Each scream of anguish.
Blinded him from the dream of possibilities.
And as he was raised for all to see,
he was summoned for a final act.....

They gathered at the foot of his ending.........
........................................................................
....................
He smiled.....
               then looked to the west
                                     then held the soldier in his heart. 
                                                         and his death fell upon the world with a cry to God,

and the Tenth Way of Sorrow was sung into the brutal and darkened heart.
