Beat My Heart

“If you are suffering from a bad man’s injustice, forgive him – lest there be two bad men.”

St. Augustine
Hey you, over there
You who cowers in their lair
Incapable of care
I hate the face you wear.

It gives no single thought
Muted, adds to my distraught
A stone cannot be shown or taught
To bleed. No, your love can’t be bought.

I fling these venom darts your way
And wait, with heat, to meat my prey
Yes I who was the victim first
Has now become a villain worse.

So now I meet You on my knees
Lord, begging for Humility.
Can I, the heart, that I speak of
Beat now, through You, for him, with love?
