I have not heard the music within your being,
Nor felt the rhythm of your life
How can I criticize your song
Or even your singing?
I have not dreamed your dreams
Nor seen your visions
Nor designed your castles
How can I say you walk in the wrong direction?
I have not plunged the depth of your feelings
Nor felt the intensity of your needs
Nor known the agony of your hurts
How can I say you should not cry?
I have not known the questions you asked
Nor heard the answers you were given
Nor witnessed your encounter with mystery
How can I say you are not living?
I have not walked the path of your youth
Nor stood at the crossroads of your decisions
Nor journeyed the roads of your daily living
How can I say your life is not true?
I have not known the pain of your sufferings
Nor the intensity of your battles
Nor the humiliations of your defeats
How can I say you did not try?
Yet , my sister
These I have both said and done.
Forgive me ! Father
