Poem based on Matthew 18:21-35

We share this world

this life
with the many who are the
Children of God
We live
and sin
            and hate
                        and love
as do our brothers and sisters.
in forgiveness
Christ makes us one,
in envy
            we try to become two
forgive one another
live not as the master
or gatekeeper
lest you find yourself one day
facing the gate from the other side
forced by your own insistence
on the upholding of the law
than forgiveness
it is in forgiveness
that our division is united
and our soul healed once again
to see the glory of God
shinning into our lives

in love
