Desire To Forgive Poem by John Sensele

Desire To Forgive

Rating: 4.5

Desire to forge ahead
Regardless of challenges that come your way
Devise winning strategies instead of banging your head
Against a wall yesterday or today.

Desire to spread joy
Regardless of hostilities and turbulence
That may pepper your life as part of a ploy
By detractors to subjugate your conscience.

Desire to embrace folks, big and small
If gregariousness so dictates
For the sake of clearing the ball
That's in your court whatever your mind states.

Desire to unify patriots
Regardless of their political affiliation
Whatever hymns and dirges Hottentots
Choose to play during your election victory celebration.

Desire to display magnanimity
When you emerge victorious
In handball games devoid of enmity
Associated with the boisterous.

Desire to forgive erring associates
Regardless of tricks and pranks
They've played on you and bets
They've gambled as they joined crook ranks.
