God's "Way" - Poem by Eva O. Scott

I took a good look
At the good book To learn what I should know
And which way I should go. It says "For he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot be loving God whom he has not seen." What does this mean?
It's not easy as it may seem. It says we should be meek,
And 'turn the other cheek.' In essence, "Do not resist he who slaps you":
But humbly let Jah do vengeance for you. Thus justice will win
Without sin. It is a peaceful course
One without remorse. God's word is the "way,"
Let us follow it each day.
