Testing Jesus's philosophy

Today I had to test Jesus's philosophy. An eye for an eye? Or forgiveness?

Someone clocked me hard in the eye for no real reason. What sort of punishment should they get?

It's a test. I took the 'high road', but was it because of fear or compassion? Through my head runs the thought, again and again: it was fear.

It's a test
I took the high road
but was it fear or compassion
through my head runs the thought
again and again
it was fear

I suppose it's a poem. Not a great one, but it rhymes, sorta. If you pronounce it how I do.
