As the resting period wanes
I find myself delving deeper
into the concept of kindness and mercy
as a daily routine.
I mean, both values are probably considered rare sightings in our crazy world.
Mercy, I find, requires a lot more intentional purpose - perhaps even the greater good in mind. "Not getting what you deserve", as opposed to grace, "getting what you don't deserve".
I think it it the withdrawal
of a raised fist
or a cry of injustice
that makes it so damn difficult.
Mercy to the one who wronged you.
Mercy to the one you hate.
Mercy to the one who is struggling.
I am so blessed;
unlimited and undeserved
Oh, the sound
of that goodness and grace.
Help me fight to follow.
