God listens

A paraphrase of Psalm 120, by David Haas. 

Whenever I am in pain,

God listens, 

and speeds toward me, 

ready to help. 

So, once again, 

I need you, God, 

to save me from those who hate me. 

What do we accomplish 

by being so hateful?

So many people deliberately

choose to be cruel. 

Why do we have to live like this? 

I only want us to be peaceful with one another,

and others want violence.
