The cruel words in my ears explode,
Turning off my brain’s “nice mode”
“Payback”, now my first response,
“Revenge will be served hot for once”
Bitter words like cement sinking in;
Hardened in my heart within.

“But Forgiveness,” pled the truth inside,
“But curses cut,” screamed out my pride.
Like an evil arrow finds its mark again,
My fleshly senses swell around the pain,
As the soul sickened from sin’s agony,
Make a friend become my worst enemy.

The barbs stuck fast inside my soul,
And as they festered I lost control.
At last in rage I let the hurting fly,
Heaping curses at a brazen sky.
I blamed everyone and then God too,
When at last a cross came into view.

High above the din of all my curses,
He hung still begging for my mercies.
As I behold the end of all my hate,
Accursed now, he gladly takes my fate.
I see in His mournful, sunken eyes,
Loves embrace in sin’s deathly sighs.

Streams of mercy wet my cheek;
For now I know the peace I seek.
I see another seeker standing near
With tears of sorrow through the fear.
The angry words that shattered me,
Dissolve on the cross I love dearly.

No more will we be slain by fear.
This curse stops right now, right here.
Freed from hatred and the shame,
Grace has put out hate’s evil flame.
Jesus scars set all the sinners free,
Forgiveness did deep work in me.

Freedom is just a prayer away,
If you’re not too afraid to stray,
From the hatred you embrace,
Then change your mind and face,
Turn one-eighty to the Son,
And let wrath and rage be done.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This has a wonderful flow to it, with selections of words beyond the usual or expected. I really enjoyed the read, and will read again until it begins to sink into me. Thanks for sharing. Lesley-Anne

I have had such a battle with learning to forgive people who hurt me and your words captured the war that sometimes rages between my pride and my Lord perfectly. I hope everyone would read this poem to remind us who has to win that battle. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful poem
