View Full Version : Forgiving the Enemy

You have taken all you can
And still you want more
You have stripped and left me naked
On the cold, hard floor
I know it is a sin
To feel this awful hate
Though you may chose eternal flames
Mine is a more heavenly fate
So I close my eyes and pray
For the strength that I will need
To look on you with love
And fufill the believer's creed
For I know that in your heart
Somewhat buried, is some good
And it may come out more clearly
If it were only understood
So I show you love, my brother
And harbor no resent
And continue praying that you'll realize
The good for which you're meant.
