Jesus

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

The son of God,
his only one.
They nailed him
to the cross.
He died for us,
for all our sins,
his father sacrificed
his son,
to whitewash man.
Yes, it is hard
to fathom this.
And, do you know
of any man
who would,
with true conviction,
do noble deeds
like Jesus did,
just for his fellow man?

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
