“There Will be Blood…”

 

did you think there would be no harm

did you think there would be no pain

did you think there would be no cost

 

do you not know that consequence follows cause

 

did you think I would not be harmed

did you think I would not feel pain

did you think I would not pay

 

how could you not

 

every insult hates me

every lie betrays me

every slight belittles me

 

I am despoiled by you

 

like Christ, I will love you

unlike Him, I lose the strength

to hold pain and forgive

 

God! Help me!
