Crown of Glory

A poem by Sun Myung Moon written when he was 16

 

 

When I doubt people, I feel pain.

When I judge people, it is unbearable.

When I hate people, there is no value to my existence.

 

Yet if I believe, I am deceived.

If I love, I am betrayed

Suffering and grieving tonight, my head in my hands

Am I wrong?

 

Yes, I am wrong.

 

Even though we are deceived, still believe,

Though we are betrayed, still forgive.

Love completely, even those who hate you.

Wipe your tears away and welcome with a smile

Those who know nothing but deceit,

And those who betray without regret.

 

O, Master, the pain of loving!

Look at my hands.

Place your hand on my chest.

My heart is bursting, such agony.

 

But when I love those who acted against me,

I brought victory.

If you have done the same things,

I will give you the Crown of Glory.

 

 

 

Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon
