Forgiving something small is easy,
excusing someone you hardly know;
but some one close, who fails you
that’s a wound, an open sore.
So when to mend the scars and how?
We need the answers now.
Lest the wounds we bear
fester, get angrier and grow.
Still, dark angers urge redress.
Surely there’s no sense in this.
Strike back and hurt, at least a bit.
as deeper gets the vengeful pit.
We need not vengeance here; but healing,
to find a balm for all the pain.
Easier far to repay in spite,
then hate wins, despite love’s might.
Turn back, turn back; from the abyss
where darkness rules the day.
Let light flood in to heal the wounds,
despite our instinctive way.
It is not easy, to wipe away the hurt,
of injuries that stick like stinking dirt.
We must forgive; for that’s the only way,
for love to linger longer, despite the price we pay.
One thought on “Forgiveness – the gift of love.”
