    Love my enemies

    Should I not feed you when you are hungry?
    Clothe you when you are naked
    Cover you when you are unguarded
    Protect you when you need protection
    Yes, for I love you my enemy

    Should I take hold of your cross?
    Help you when you are lost
    Guide when you cannot see
    That you too have destiny
    Treasure the gifts that are inside you
    Stay with you until your breakthrough
    Yes, for I love you my enemy

    Should I protect your reputation?
    Cover you from the false things people are saying
    Cover your virtue and protect your honor
    While all the while mine you slaughter
    Give you secrets to unlock the mysteries
    While all the while you are killing me
    Yes, for I love you my enemy

    Love your enemy as your self
    Love him as if you could love anyone else
    Love him through his lies and setups
    Love him when he falls so he can get up
    Love him through the traps he has set
    For this act of love he shall never forget
    These are the things that Jesus spoke of
    When he told us just give them love

    Love my enemies

    Oh if only it were so!

    and when perfect peace does manifest
    that must be what the world will be like
    when their is no enemy only those you love!
    But, if thine enemy does not accept your love!
    And strife continues to rule?
    DEEP YOU WENT DEEP ON THIS ONE AND I ADMIRED
    YOUR STYLE AND RHYTHM! PEACE AND PROSPERITY!

    ...for it is easy

    to love those who love us.... there is nothing unique in that....it is when we can show kindness and love to those who despise and spitefully ab/use us....

    therein lies the true metal of our souls....

    speak, Poet.

    thank you

    a
