Turn the other cheek

I am a compulsive keeper of notebooks. “To do” lists, ideas, sketches, doodles, a window into my mind. Sometimes I look through them with a view to throwing them out. Occasionally, I find a poem what I wrote (that’s not bad grammar, btw, that’s Eric and Ernie – reference for British 50 somethings!). This one makes me sad.

I wish you well

If you cut me I will bleed
If you hit me I will bruise
Wounds heal
Bruises fade
But your hate is with you always
*
You will not see me crying
You will not make me hate you
Your damage
Causes pain
I see the despair in your eyes
*
You lack the courage to break free
You fail to rise above your past
My eyes are clear
My heart is open
And I choose to fill it with love
*
