Joy is my first word this morning,
Hostilities surround me,
Yet, my world is calm,
I feel the breath of hate,
From the words of Contempt,
But, my heart is touched by Love.
The hater’s words will soon turn,
When they stare him in the face,
They will be his own destruction,
All his evil plans are meaningless,
Because, he lost sight of truth,
In the midst of a thousand lies,
The delusion of control is destroyed.
God’s mercy reaching out to me,
Touching my deepest pain,
His healing words speak hope,
After despair is transformation,
That comes like new growth,
After the fiercest downpour,
Love’s words fosters new shoots.
Hate’s foolishness will not last,
The word traps he set,
Will become his prison,
Eternity’s plan is always unfolding,
Searching for hope in everyone,
While exposing pride’s false promise,
God’s approval is my desire,
Foolishness always has the same end.
