I’ll get on my knees By Steve Lang

I’ll get on my knees 

“I can’t breathe!”
They did not understand him
“I need some water”
Why is my language not clear to you?
“Everything hurts”
The invalid replied
“I’m sorry; I’m so sorry!”
  
“They’re gonna kill me, man”
I have no-one to help me
“Mama, Mama, Mama!”
Stop sinning or something worse may happen
  
“Let him breathe!”
The law forbids you
“Don’t kill me!” 
You judge by human standards
“I’m about to die”
No one ever spoke like this man!”     (John 7:46) 

Steve Lang has published one collection of poetry to date, entitled, “‘Heavenly Hurt”. Steve’s poem, “Raphael” has been nominated by Ariel Chart International Literary Journal for the 2020 Pushcart Poetry Prize. ‘Plum Tree’,  ‘Tavern’, ‘Grand Little Things’ and ‘Indian Periodical’ have also published Steve’s work this year and ‘Founder’s Favourites’ and ‘BeznCo’ will feature his work shortly.
