Love is the Witness

I made a confession.
I cannot make a concession.
I will never quit this.
Love is the witness.

Defend the displaced,
With a bold embrace.
Welcome the unwanted,
With a grit undaunted.

Plead for the poor,
By giving what is yours.
We cannot quit this.
Love is the witness.

Though the anger rages on,
And the arrogant are strong,
Though denial is the school,
And many play the fool,
We will never quit this.
Love is the witness.

~ My late night Advent poem

    Bro,

        I’m glad that God revealed this to you to write down & encourage others.  I have printed it out to read & contemplate on & selectively send to others who would do the same.

        Advent blessings to you,
