How Did You Do It? 

By Sarina Goos


How did you do it?


Nails pounded in your hands

and thorns placed on your head.


You were mocked and beaten

like an animal.


Placed to die

on a cross.


A death that

no one deserves.


You did it

not only for me

my family

my community

or my country.


You did it for

each and every one of us.




Not because we deserved it

but because you loved us.


You remained humble

and did not stumble

and lose your faith in God.



how did you do it?
