The Powerless

You may
have the power
to threaten us
and intimidate us
and terrorize us
and kill and maim us,
but you are powerless
to stop us from forgiving you.
You are powerless
to keep us from asking
our God to heal your fear.
You are powerless
to end our compassion for you.

Powerless against powerless.
Guess which one will win in the end.
