Endless Refrain

lightning-bolt-768801_1920

When could have’s
should have’s,
if only’s and maybe’s
pound on your path
like a torrential rain
seek shelter in the
promise of Love
and Mercy: God’s
hopeful and
endless refrain.

Compassion

Choose not
the path of perfection,
frigid and ruthless
in its demands.
Walk rather
the road of compassion,
with love and mercy
streaming generously
from open hands.
