Perception of injustice brought many folks to rage.
Our mind says, “Let’s get even, our heart says, don’t engage.
‘Twas Gandhi’s words of wisdom, that called us to be kind,
An Eye for an Eye, this old law, will turn the whole world blind.
Revenge and fierce aggression, born from a heart that’s weak,
The Gospel cited Jesus, “to turn the other cheek”.
The morning of our life-span we conquer and protect,
the treasures we have gathered, from Have Nots seek respect.
The ignorance of others tempts me to righteous pride.
If I’d been walking in their shoes, I’ve seen the other side.
The dark side of my mind, breeds judgment and decay,
forgiveness brings us healing, if practiced every day.
I seek a higher Consciousness, a heart that can forgive,
It calls for self-awareness, to change the way I live.
In time of meditation, seek wisdom from above,
Oh Lord, my God, I thank Thee, remind me to share Love.
