I had two friends I blindly loved
And trusted them with all I had.
They soon proved false and left behind
Suspicion that mankind was bad.
I saw men lift the sword of war
To kill and maim the innocent.
They scorned the tears I could not hide
And increased my bewilderment.
I weighed the evidence I saw
And counted mankind but a loss,
Yet failed to realize that I
Had missed the message of the cross.
There were two friends that Jesus loved
That did betray Him for a gain
Of money and security
And caused Him so much grief and pain.
Some nailed Him high upon a cross,
A man who never did a wrong.
He only asked God to forgive
The sins of those who were along.
God gave to man His only Son
And precious was the life He lost.
How could God give the best He had
Unless mankind was worth the cost?
Yu/stan/kema ( age 25).
