two part poem: Of Those Who Persecute & Response by the Persecuted

Of Those Who Persecute
Hatefulness reigns
Nastiness and lies
Destroying reputations—
Oblivious to their own fate

Seeking revenge
Persecute and curse
Fictionalizing rumours—
Humiliating their own lives

Response by the Persecuted:
Forgiveness reigns
Tested and tried
Imminent challenges ahead—
Continuing firmly in truth.

Finding courage
Inner strength we find
Trusting in our Father’s plan—
Hope for tomorrow – safe in Him
