Letting Go of Hate by Raymond A. Foss
A sense of vindication
of closure for the loss
not joy in the killing
in the taking of a life

If we are to be Christians
we must change our thinking
letting go of hate
forgiving our neighbor

A hard lesson
hard to let go
but our healing
in forgiving our enemies
as Christ forgave us on the cross
