Retaliation - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Perceived persecution births Retaliation
Its ugly tendrils grow and strangle Truth
Breeding seed from its vile Deception
Unaware of its own destructive fruit.

The cycle of Anger never really ends
It multiples in time and darkened force
Harvesting Bitterness and with no amends
It consumes the Peace of its very own source.

'A man reaps what he sows' as the Word says
Retaliation reaps eternal demise for those
Who deny the God Who judges all in His ways
And so seal their fate in the Abyss, I suppose.

    The tendrils of retaliation strangle truth. The cycle of anger consumes peace passing though bitterness. The poem gives wonderful facts of human experience. Well Done. (Report) Reply
