Turning The Other Cheek

by Christopher J. Holmes

Lord God 
will I ever learn? 
will I ever understand? 
that I was put here to serve 
you and only You 
and not these mortal men 
who are not my friends 
Seeking only to do me in 
every chance they get 
seeking to seal my fate 
lying to my face 
when their hearts are 
filled with hate 
seeking to celebrate 
my demise 
scandalizing my name with 
vicioius lies 
looking at me with 
envious eyes 
saying how much they 
truly despise 
the way I carry myself 
when in reality 
I'm not better than anyone else 

Lord, will I ever learn 
that if I don't play with fire 
I will still get burned? 

Maybe, y'all, it's just my turn 
to be crucified and 
nailed to the cross 

now I understand 
when Jesus said 
Father forgive them 
for they know not what they do 

so when you talk about me 
I'll fight back by praying for you
