by Olivia Arieti

The sky darkened
On the lonely hill,
The wooden bars
Too heavy
For the burdened
The path
Too steep
For the saddened
A desperate crowd
Followed the nailing,
The thorns,
The bleeding,
Till all souls
Gathered beneath
The Saviour 
And looked up
For the last ray
Of Redemption
Before darkness
