Year of Mercy

When fear’s fire is hot

With no worthwhile thought,

Flee to the last hope of men:

God won’t give a Damn

Unless we beg for one-

And maybe, not even then.

I feel this demands comment because it can be interpreted two ways, by the one who hopes and by the one who despairs. The one who despairs sees an apathetic God, or perhaps no God at all. The one who hopes sees that even in her own brokenness, she always has the promise of Heaven if she fights on. The last line speaks of the power of intercession and Mercy for all souls.
