A Waste of Time


hating is a waste of time
it wracks my soul
and wrecks my rhyme

if a whirlwind came along
and punished all
who done me wrong

that wouldn’t fix a doggone thing
and how much comfort
would it bring?

spreading pain and misery
won’t help my woes
or set me free

i’ll try to do what Jesus said
and love the folks
who wish me dead
