Before You Hurt Someone


Before you hurt someone
Think about your loved ones
Your parents, wife and children
Think about your loved ones
If that person were one of them
Would you have hurt him or her
Would you have cared or given a darn
If you hurt someone, you turn is around the corner
If you plant hate and terror
That's what you will harvest one day
Even if you shoot or hurt in error
You are not exempt to receive a spray.

Love your fellow men and women
You will be loved in return, Amen!

Before you kill a stranger
Think about your loved ones
Before you shoot a bystander
Think about your loved ones
When you kill God's children
Expect bad things will happen
To you, to your relatives and friends
Help your neighbors, lend a few hands
Nobody wants to die prematurely
Nobody wants to get hurt senselessly
'Thou shall not kill', period
Do not hit or hurt with a rod
And then expect that someone
Will not fight or hurt back, the Heaven
Is watching, somewhere there is a witness
If you love yourself, you will not cause distress
Pain, grief, and death to your fellow men and women.

Love your fellow men and women
You will be loved in return, Amen!

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
