An Eye For An Eye

“An eye for an eye”
is not what Jesus said
“We don’t care” they cry,
“we just want them dead!”

But does that not make
the whole world as blind
if another’s life we take
when we act in kind?

And what about if we
take the path that’s wrong
would we then not be
whistling the very same song?

If we make a mistake
and condemn an innocent man
then do we not forsake
what God for them did plan?

Therein the dilemma does lie
when we do judge another
and sentence someone to die
who is our spiritual brother

My point don’t you see?
Just think it over again
for whose would truly be
the greater of the sin?
