2002 Poetry

If you hope for your neighbor’s mishap

Beware they all might just bounce back

Heaven would not allow such a trap

Your intentions to bring on hard luck

The dickens may consent to it to happen

But remember the return is harsh and sudden

You’ve caused your neighbor such a disaster

In ten folds suffer the same flounder

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Everything you do is like a boomerang that will come back to you

I like what you had to say here. It happens all too often that people are so set in having revenge that they forget it's not our place to hurt others or anyone else's for that matter. God is here to judge and even He doesn't judge. He loves, forgives, consoles, helps us learn, etc. I think that we all need to follow in His footsteps here to help us with yesterday, today, tomorrow, and even once we're past being alive. I think we need stop seeking revenge to learn how to love, forgive, learn, and move on.
