Could you do it?
send your son to die?
send him to the most cruel death imaginable
and then only able to watch
Would you be able to stand there
and not interfere?
would you be able to reassure yourself
that you were doing the right thing?
would you collapse in grief at his final words
cry at those words of forgivness
with no hurt or blame
would you be able to send your son
into the most perfect sacrifice?
