Forgiveness




How do you love those who never will love you,
Who are happy to shove you out in front of the train?
How do you not hate those who would leave you lie bleeding
While they hold their prayer meeting?

How do you love those who never will love you,
Who are so frightened of you they are calling for war?
How do you not hate those who have loaded their bibles,
And armed their disciples?
I don’t know anymore.

And I can’t find forgiveness for them anywhere in this.
And with God as my witness, I really have tried.
But how do you love those who never will love you,
Well I think only God knows and he is not taking sides.
I hope one day he shows us how we can love those

Who never will love us but who still must love.
