Dying with disdain, such a bitter taste,
A callused heart, hardened by the wear of hate;

Why shan’t you forgive, lest carry loathe to the grave?
What you sow you reap, and what you give you take;

Don’t you know you cannot hate, and still see the Lord’s presence?
Those blind to forgiveness, are those blind to heaven;

Whatever could he do, to make you abhor like such?
Whatever could he say, to take away your grace and love?

The hatred keeps you, bound in the shackles of your detest,
Only forgiveness, can take the hate and give you rest;

But your heart’s so hurt, you don’t think you can love,
So pray warily, pray to the Father above;

Because if you can’t love, forgive those who trespassed,
Who in heaven, then, shall speak before the Father on your behalf?

Braeden Frantz,

  1. I feel bad
    That those with legitimate conflict with the world around them
    Have no outlet
    Legitimate or otherwise for this conflict
    And have to set off
    to maim other people
    cannot affect the
    lack of outlet
    as those
    forces have been in place
    for too long
    and are almost
    without even more

    love to all


    • I am not sure exactly what you are talking about, but no one is ever forced to set off a bomb. There’s a lot of hate in this world, but violence is never an answer and cannot be justified by lack of outlet or whatnot.

  2. Hello there, I do think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.

    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in IE,
    it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, great site!

    • I have a Mac, so I don’t use Internet Explorer. Thanks for the heads up though and I’ll be sure to check it out, though if it’s a browser issue I dont think there’s much I can do.
