Worthy

(a poem)
It is dangerous
for us to think
that we get to decide
who is worthy of acceptance
and who is not . . .
It is damaging
for us to think
that we get to decide
who is worthy of mercy
and who is not . . .
It is destructive
for us to think
that we get to decide
who is worthy of justice
and who it not . . .
It is disastrous
for us to think
that we get to decide
who is worthy of love
and who is not . . .
It is diabolical
for us to think
that we get to decide
who is worthy of grace
and who is not . . .
It is damning
for us to think
that we get to decide
who is worthy
and who is not . . .
