Apostle James would have been my friend

who am I to speak in psalm
my heart, without a soul, is made of stone.
I am the wicked, the perverse, the insane,
and so without, I would remain.
Life is a double edged sword, piercing flesh from death
Iron sharpens iron, my Abba always said
We are taught that love and light is what we fight for,
but why would the same God be so despiteful;
yes I must know the cold to feel the heat
but who is the listener when I speak
I am a stranger to this land,
and still, I chose to love by your command

I have, is the word despiteful; I think [spiteful] is the only part that you need. [I did look it up]~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?
