Bitter Slave

By: Earl W. Haskins

When families fight and will not speak
Or lasting peace they will not seek

 

Upon a death they’ll fight no more
And then they'll ask what was it for

 

More bitterness must not be sown
It serves no good as time has shown

 

So mend your soul and bind the beast
Forgive the one who earns it least

 

Compassion then becomes the host
For those you know that need it most

 

Set free a slave if you so choose
And cut those chains you need to lose
