Pain Received, And Then Shared, Is Sins Legacy,

    Mercy Given

    To receive mercy is pure gift,
    no one can demand this healing balm,
    justice for-gone to touch a suffering soul,
    whose heart is hard from sin’s scalding wound,

    Pain received, and then shared, is sins legacy,
    others paying for the guilt of another,
    poisonous fruit, is evil’s gift,
    endless cycles of suffering, absurdity, and death.



    7 times 70 is God’s code for mercy,
    no end, infinite in scope,
    to embrace ones pain and to not scapegoat
    is the road to mercy and healing.

    “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do”
    Is the death poem of Jesus,
    a heart true, seeking to make ours like his own.—Br.MD
