Thorn-Beaten

Thorn-beaten,
by looks of scorn
by words of hate.

Thorn-beaten,
by silent tears behind closed doors
by lonely vigils.

Thorn-beaten,
by mindful exclusions
by condescending snears.

Thorn-beaten,
by the power brokers;
Thorn-beaten,
by the self-interest seekers.

Thorn-beaten,
yet faith is stronger.
Thorn-beaten,
yet hope is clearer.
Thorn-beaten,
but love will not end,
even towards those who wield the thorns.
