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. 2.5 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. 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.
