what i can’t forgive

what i can’t forgive                                October 9, 2015
God is better than i am
He loves my rapist
And Kim Davis
i can only manage one of these
on my best days

God is better than i am
i hate you tonight
i hate you because
i hate hating
despite all of my praying
i can find no peace
if God can forgive you
She is better than me

i can forgive that you
did not stop
when i screamed STOP
what i can’t forgive
is your arrogance and violence
your blindness and willingness
to twist my jesus
for your injustice

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.
