Hurting Others



In hurting others
we kill our own human nature
and die before death comes
We divorce our dirty ego
losing battles we thought we won
and winning what we thought we lost

We remain wise
until we use The Word of God
as our Mind-oscope to examine ourselves
then we espy how our oscillating mind
has been the warehouse of foolishness
moving us everywhere yet taking us no where

Deliberately hurting others
we impede happiness from reaching
down to the innermost part of our soul
Filling our mind with venomous thoughts
we sow seasonal seeds which someday become a harvest of unrest.

What on mother earth can hurt others
more than a deaf ear and a blind eye
you give to their misgivings?
Forgiveness for sure is the best revenge
and in love and faith lies all super virtues
needed to hurt others the right way.
