build peace

build peace                        April 2, 2015
before we build peace in the world
let us build peace between us
lest we be only hypocrites

you have pulled the leaves from my olive branch
it’s only a stick
you have spat at my white flag
it is wet and gray
have my cheek – now the other
will you crucify me too?

you seem surprised
i come again
over and over

i thought you knew my love
i see God in you
i see a sinner too
i reach through Him
to show me true

you fear and hate
rather than appreciate
the terrible tenderness
of a girl with God

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
