Offence

Offence is a shady friend

With no love lost

Like a slither of ice 

Melting away into a wasteland

Empty and meaningless

The close companion to offence

Resentment

When full blown

Leaves nothing but bitterness

Bitterness knows no end

Like a raging fire

Leading to defilement

All who draw near and touch this root

Are poisoned by its fruit

Jesus is the rock of offence

Fall on Him who was broken

So every offence can be broken off

Rendered powerless under His grace

With no shame to be found
