Forgive! The Forgetting Will Come - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The most difficult thing one can do,
But has proven to rid one of anxieties...
Is to forgive oneself!
With an acknowledgement of a wrong done.
Regardless of who did what first,
To anyone!

Forgive!
The forgetting will come.

Why remain embittered waiting for another,
To express remorse.
Some folks carry a hatred to their graves.
And for what reason?
To ensure the beating of a dead horse,
Has been successfully done?

Forgive!
The forgetting will come.
