What should I write this holy week?
When whole nation's prayers at peak,
An answer to my prayer Oh! Lord I seek;
Make me like Veronica astonishingly meek.

With deep love in her heart she came forward,
Ignored abusive shouts of Soldiers who towered-
around thorn -crowned Christ profusely covererd-
with life blood of love to mankind; willingly showered.

Veronica immersed with passion and grief,
Stretched forth her Towel; nothing did she speak,
Heavy cross laden Christ though painfully weak,
Accepted the towel; wiped thy holy face deep.

A wonderful miracle had incurred,
The image of holy face forever lingered,
As a mark of gratitude towards Veronica
Legendary status of walk towards Golgotha.

Oh! I want to be like Veronica so bold,
The power to ignore evil thousand fold,
Stretch forth the towel of kindness to deserving,
Move with passion and love towards weakling.
