Title: Contention Grows Like Bitter Weeds

Topic: contention, peace, growth

1.
Contention grows like bitter weeds
That choke and drain the light
Of love and spirit that one needs
To grow and thrive with might.

But Christ, the gardener, prunes these weeds
And then sustains our spirits’ needs.

2.
Contention grows in soils of doubt,
Amid the rocky ground.
It won’t allow new seeds to sprout
Or fruit to then be found.

But Christ, the gardener, prunes these weeds
And then sustains our spirits’ needs.

3
Contention spoils the pleasant plant.
That otherwise would grow.
The law of harvest says we can’t
Reap what we do not sow.

But Christ, the gardener, prunes these weeds
And then sustains our spirits’ needs.
