They Couldn’t Understand - Poem by Gert Strydom

They couldn’t understand
that your kingdom wasn’t
from this world
and that You were both
totally God and man.

Your life of love
and the things that
You set out to do
wasn’t understood
while they nailed You to a cross
and ridiculed You.

Stupid mortal man
killed the Creator and Son of God
and the earth shook and the sky went dark.
