mercy is complex
it has nothing to do with deserve
deserve invalidates mercy

often those who need mercy
seem so undeserving

there is a time for justice and consequences
but it is wisdom to know when the moment for mercy is ripe

mercy is not straightforward
there is no promise it will fix anything
yet mercy is a powerful, mighty message to the universe
good can still exist inside us
unmitigated kindess and compassion is not weak
but powerful

when it does it’s mighty work
it changes lives
and wears the face of hope for all humanity in the hand given to another
that we all matter
though we stumble we can rise, though we are humbled
we can still be loved
