If It’s Done Out of Love by Milton Lee Norris
From "Born In The Wrong Country
If it’s done out of love, then why should anyone care?
For what I need and what you need are just two worlds apart,
so all you have to do is try and understand,
that if I haven’t judged you for everything you think,
then why should you now judge me because of the way I think?
There comes a time when people should have some respect
even though they haven’t used it, or perhaps they just forgot.
In any case you should remember when we were growing up,
a time when you loved us oh so much then,
or was that just pretending or were you really our friends?
And if you really were a friend of ours, then please be one right now,
and try to be accepting of my life that’s not so different than yours right now,
for in our relationships, there’s joy, there’s laughter and friendship too,
not saying that there’s no hardships because they do come too,
but that joy and friendship is based on a real love we share,
that when we were growing up you once shared with us too,
so don’t be hypocritical now as this nation is with us,
for this is our time of need, and even if we differ,
we should still be the same to you,
for we are the children that God gave to you,
and if you believe in anything today,
believe that God knew what
He was doing when He created you and me.
