day 15

Be gracious to me, O LORD.
   See what I suffer from
         those who hate me;  Psalm 9:13a

Lord, be gracious
to those who have suffered
from my hurtful words,
        my cavalier arrogance,
        my thoughtless disdain,
        my (dare I admit) hate;
especially when i could have
   lifted them up with
      grace
            comfort
         hope
      love
instead.
