___The road was paved with sorrow and shame,
____K i n g_ o f_ t h e_ J e w s was to be slain,
_____Crowds pressed in to condemn the man,
______Who was blameless before time began.

_________B L A C K was my soul
_________From the sin and guilt
_________Of killing an innocent lamb
_________A bridge was now built

_________C R I M S O M E Blood
_________Was shed that day
_________A most costly price
_________He was willing to pay

_________Saving me from sin
_________That set me free
_________At the cross it lay
_________For all of mankind to see

_________W H I T E and Pure
_________Clean as new fallen snow
_________No longer condemned
_________For horrors untold

_________G R E E N for Eternal Life
_________If I accepted the gift as was given
_________Nothing to do but to be forgiven

______A splash of colors, a warm embrace
_______Await my presence in the pearly gates
______No longer the darkness and cries of pain
_______His sacrifice was great and erased my stain
______Nothing but beauty, the ashes replaced
_______With Streets of gold and a brand new place

Wow, this says it all. Your splash of colors tells everything Jesus did for us. I sense a winner here.

This is really quite lovely. Your lines flowed easily and you had some great descriptions.

I'm not sure if the lines before were to help the spacing. It distracted me slightly. I know there us a HTML code so that you can center your poems. If you go to the FAQ on the message boards, I think there is a thread that tells how to do all of those neat things.

I think your take on the topic was quite creative and fresh. You also told the best story ever told with such delightful rhythm. Your message of hope is a great one.

I think that the poem was formed in the shape of a cross.
