Those words you spoke.
I wonder if you knew how much they’d hurt.
Yet still you spoke them.
And the tongue is a flame of fire
I wonder if you believed they were true.
Why? How could you
believe such loathsome things
It is a whole world of wickedness
I wonder if this is what you wanted.
I felt my heart ripped from my body,
set on fire and laughed at.
My life is not the same.
Corrupting your entire body
No one stood with me.
They heard your words,
They looked at me in disgust.
My defenses were burned as rubble.
It can set your whole life on fire
And what of you?
Are you as well as you seem?
I want you to hurt like I do,
I cannot forget.
For it is set on fire by hell itself.
But maybe you didn’t measure them,
I hope that maybe you hadn’t thought about
them at all.
I wonder if we could find other words.
Forgive us our sins
I wonder if we could choose them
carefully, in sincerity and truth,
because He calls us to.
As we forgive those who sin against us.
