Like a lot of people, I didn't want to believe the allegations,

I thought he was being falsely accused,

Extortion at best, vendetta at worst against this poor old man;

It's not fair; those women shouldn't ruin his life.


Then I read their stories on New York Magazine

And I couldn't believe what I was reading.

Who is this Beast of a Man or Man of a Beast?

How did he become this perverted?


I secretly wished him a horrendous death,

An incurable sickness or a ghastly accident.

His Spirit cautioned me;

"Am sorry Lord, I know it's not my place to judge."


But what he did to those women; he altered their lives,

Stopped their dreams and destroyed their future...

I secretly wished that his family would abandon him,

His unborn grandchildren spit on him and friends reject him.


I wished upon him the ten plagues of Egypt,

The disease of Job and the entire curse of Deuteronomy 28.

His Spirit cautioned me;

"Am sorry Lord, I know I shouldn't harbour hatred in my heart."


The priest who hears his confession would be traumatized, I thought to myself.

How will he say to a serial rapist, "go my son, your sins are forgiven."

Apostle Paul was a serial killer, His Spiriy reminded me...

In the Kingdom of God, all are welcome.
