MATTHEW 5:38// Reboot: You have heard it said …

Love: demolish hate and establish your garden in its ruin.
Strangle your beauty round enmity roots,
Grow and cling and climb; subdue those fallen walls.
Cover its harsh reality with your brutally-honest life.

World’s words spoken; foundations laid in grief,
Now silent, now crushed, become nothing.
Obliterated by fires of compassion.
Laid waste by the force of love’s destruction.

Love, become a forest. Love, become a city.
Love what was into all it will be.
Unheard, unseen, unhurried,
You turn again, give again, run again; further.

You scream their pain
You bare their scare
You defend beyond death
Redeem from the grave.
