Forgive - Poem by Laurence Overmire

Take the ego, put it in a box.
Set it on the table.

Acknowledge, heart-wise
The inter-connection of one to another.

Recognize fault.
Without and within.

Refuse blame.
Accept imperfection.

And finally, from the struggle of soul to soul
Once again, embrace

Humanity.
