‘No room for hate’

There is no room within my heartfor revenge, fire or hatethere is no room within my mindfor any thoughts like these.

There is no room within my heart
for revenge, fire or hate
there is no room within my mind
for any thoughts like these.
I cannot find the words to say
just how it is I feel
but I know from deepest heart
I must forgiveness find.
The hurt that’s been done to us
cuts sore like a knife,
but we must not, repay in kind
what has been done to us.
Instead we must try and find
the way that is so hard,
and reach out our loving hands
to find some friendship now.
There can be no more healing thing
than opening wide our eyes
and seeing that most others
are really just like us.
