When did I become your enemy?
How did I become your foe?
Why is all the violence the next big show?
We used to call each other neighbor,
helped when things got tough,
but now we’re aiming at one another
with angry words all rough.
Haven’t we done this too often?
Blaming everyone else for their sins?
As if we had the straightline to go
judging them again.
But as I recall, a homeless jewish man
gave only two things to do
Love God above all others
and love others like you do you.
When did that message get lost?
How did we dig so deep into despair?
When we all bleed red like our sisters do
Are we too far gone to repair?
It’s time to dust off the LOVE
that’s been hidden in the wood
Allow holiness from above
to return our hearts to good.
