What Teasing Can Cause

“It’s just teasing” we say
Nothing more than that to us
“It’s just teasing” we say
As we laugh and joke all at his expense
“It‘s just teasing” we say
As he hardens his heart to the world
“It’s just teasing” we say
As he fights to walk away
“It’s just teasing” we say
As he finds his heart in hatred today
“It’s just teasing” we say
As he fights for his life when things go our way
“It was just teasing” we told him
As he holds us to our death
One shiny object between us and our life
All because all we said was “It’s just teasing”
When to him it was beating

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
