Choosing Love

How can someone trust
Existence love divine
Experience just shows
The opposite they find

Not to be condemned
Victims they not be
Hidden may it seem
This possibility

Subject to cruel torture
Rejected horribly
Although the many suffer
Choose love incredibly

A witness they become
Resiliency is shown
Love of which transcends
The human love they’ve known

To love in hatreds midst
Even on a small scale
Offers to the world
A hope that love prevails

Based upon text from Henri Nouwen’s Bread for the Journey
