Safe distance

“Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us” (Luke 11:4; NIV).

“But I say, love your enemies!” (Matthew 5:44; NLT).

“Pray for those who hurt you” (Luke 6:28; NLT).

Please remind me
To stay well away
From angry, controlling,
Narcissistic martyrs.

Then I can forgive them,
And pray for them
From a safe distance,
Rather than getting too close –
And getting hurt!
