Subject(s): Religion; Vengeance; Theology


Though I should be maligned by those
I trust, let not my spirit be
Broken and bowed, but may the throes
Of suffering set me free

From pettiness and that desire
Which goads one to retaliate;
With patience I would quench the fire
Of vengeance, ere it be too late.

And in defeat may I cast out
The moods of envy and despair,
And from my heart, Lord, I would rout
All bitterness. This is my prayer.
