I Love You More, The More You Hate Me.

Rating: 5.0
My brother, before it's too late, let me speak
I have turned both my cheeks
Endured decades upon decades of abuse
My pleas have been of no use
Against me you have spoken
But, my spirit hasn't been broken
Despite what you've done to me
I love you more, the more you hate me.

You see two wrongs don't make a right.
My Father told me, in anger, never to fight
That an eye for an eye makes the world blind
Giving like for like is most unkind
May i remind you that the first will be last.
If i were you i would change my ways to atone for the past.
because despite what you've done to me
I love you more, the more you hate me.

Judgement day is coming
Teeth will be gnashing
We will sing a hymn
Stand before Him
Explain why you hated Him hurting me
Even then my words shall be
'Father, despite what he has done to me'
'I love him more, more than i hate him'
