They say an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind…
But how often do You stop to be kind…
or loving enough to consider someone outside your world?
Out of sight, out of mind?
Like the natural disasters, the famine and war?
Called to be peacemakers yet
we allow peace to grow weary right next door
We so easily mute the tears of that child so sculpted by grief
So consumed by what falls only under our sky
..boxed into me, myself and pride
Remote and controlled by I TV
Like when we forget to forgive like
We aren’t living under forgiveness
Like when we refrain from giving, like we aren’t beneficiaries of God’s goodness
But were the wounds to His flesh
I said the, flesh torn pieces
Not enough for us to hold our peace?
Not enough for two to take a piece out of the book of Love, to
Remember the point of His peace purposed blood
We forget our actions nail him back to that cold cross
Was his pierced body not enough for us to mend the shattered pieces of our own egos
We so quickly forget that the war of wars was won by the real hero
With a promise to be Near to those who sorrow
& to Save those whose hope has ceased
Let’s live for Love today, for a better tomorrow
Remember Side by side is when we withstand defeat
So Take hold of this life and the Light placed inside, give ear to the broken
Let us swallow our pride
& passionately pursue peace
