I Have Come to the Conviction that God is Kind:
by Danita Jenae
to engage in the fire of conversation
with another, equally as fiery,
who entirely disagrees with me!
We, like gold, refined in our heated exchange.
While our friendship remains
you have thoroughly convinced me
that I am right in the matter.
But more importantly,
I have thus concluded
that no law nor moral standard,
no sin nor cultural norm, or un-norm,
no angels nor demons
no height nor depth
nor any argument or debate
no, nothing can ever keep God’s love at bay.
And so now, to you, I say,
for prodding these old flames,
rekindling my affections and memories
of the steadfast love and patience He has shown me.
They’ve become my revelries.
I have come to the strong conviction that
God is kind.
