(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in ‘you would?'”)
You would create a world where none were hurt.
You would exact a world a perfect peace.
You admit you would nothing to assert,
would no power for decrease or increase.
I would cry a river for hurt incur.
I would throw this world into a deep pit.
I admit I am NOT God. Would I were,
I would love them, but I’m a “sick” misfit.
“Peace be with you all, as much as you would,”
says Jesus. “I know you would if you could.
It’s the ones who challenge you that are good
for you to challenge them. That’s brotherhood!”
It’s a given you’ll be misunderstood.
Give understanding anyway. You would?
