A New Way

This is mercy
To love your enemy
Being kind to those who hurt you
To think of them as future friends
Where Forgiveness reigns
And all can mend
How will they know, till you extend
The ways of love, in turn, to break
The chains of yesterday’s old ways
Resisting urge to hurt them back
With knee jerks under leaves of grass
Apologize for your own wrong
Deprive the blunder of it’s sting
For God is love inside the slight
And liberates the song of peace
Sailing off a sunder flight
