We sit in judgement over those who commit heinous crimes
And in many it angers them and instills red mist in their minds,
They scream out hate and bey for blood
How does that make them any better?
An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind
And there no moral high ground in vengeance,
The truth is we have to get to the root of what makes them act that way
What caused this person to become so depraved,
We have to try and understand if we’re to stop this happening again,
And find someway to heal and reform them and all their flaws
And even though we cannot simply ignore,
The crime they commit but surely there’s more strength in forgiveness,
What use is there in revenge and mirroring act of wickedness.
