Only Kindness

Only kindness lets me write.
It allows the words to come into sight.
Life is hard enough without your kind.
Wagging your tongue of evil thoughts in your mind.

It's hard to pray for someone like you.
It's hard to forgive someone who makes you feel blue.
We hang on to that last knot on the rope.
As someone like you cuts off the last bit of hope.

We fall to pieces in disarray upon the ground.
As you have no regard whether we ever make a sound.
It takes all we have to vent our dismay.
But you don't care if we have got anything to say.

I've said enough, I understand too much.
How to use meaness as a crutch.
My prayer is up in the sky.
I hope Jesus finds his way into your minds eye.

    The words you write sound so blue, this travestsy that's done to you; If I could find this evil tattle I'd shake him till his teeth would rattle and give his tongue a chew. My oh my, that took a lot out of me!

    Deeply moving !! Sometimes it's hard to follow the rule ...forgive and forget....sometimes it's forgive and learn. I like that you ended this with a prayer for the one who needed it. Well written, enjoyed !!

    I enjoy this one expressing your emotions and thoughts, Robert. I am so glad I have never felt badly enough about anyone to have to struggle with these feelings. Well, my mother in law is about as bad as it gets, but I tolerate her. hahaha
