Hurt People

by Mike Turner

Hurt people
Hurt people
And perhaps our turning the other cheek
May be the only kindness they’ve ever known
It many not lead them down a different path
But perhaps bring a moment of respite
To a life filled with sorrow and pain
And are not each of us
Deserving of a small bit of comfort and peace
In this savage world?
May we see that Christ’s instruction to us
Is a simple one:
Follow the Golden Rule
Love One Another
Thus becoming the embodiment
Of Way, Truth and Light
In this mortal realm
As we follow His Path
