Lord, how do we get around all of that?
How do we turn away from anger and wrath?
Feelings and pain that run so deep
Tossing us through nights of no sleep
Ancient wounds scraped open time and time again.
Memories relived, taking us back from within
Remorse for not getting past this pain years ago
Makes a heart feel tossed to and fro
Rising above them and ourselves can be the only way
And remembering what the Almighty has to say
Love thy Lord with all thy heart
First is where we all must start
Harder yet still is the toughest asked of you and me
To love others the way we want them to love us openly
Can we do this? Can we succeed?
To kneel down in prayer for our enemy and intercede…?
