Forgiven - Poem by Soul Writer


Forgiveness is something that must be first earned

Only then is it allowed to be given

For some it’s like a key

To a form of internal peace and heaven....

Earned by the kindness you have shown

It seems in some way you have grown

Even after years of inner turmoil

And the heartache of an act disloyal

Given to you is forgiveness

It seems in some way you have now earned this

Even after my years of pain

From the act of being so vain

Forgiveness can be your key to internal heaven

Maybe your suffering will be at peace then

Depending on what it truly means to you

Only in your heart will you know if this is true

So many tearful nights id pray

For my anger and pain to go away

And all I needed, was a few words

All I needed was for you to say....

'What I did was horrible and mean'

A small jester to some it would seem

But it's all I needed to hear

Now my heart can stop shedding its painful tear

C.V you are forgiven

I hope this means something to you

Coz in my heart I say it true

    a very soul stiorring poem. fogiveness is eventually a gift you give yourself. sometimes the pain and hurt is do deep, anger wells up, tears threaten to slide down; yes, we do hope for a sincere apology. you have developed the theme very well. even if we don't get one, it helps to reframe and think maybe or so what. in time we grow up and move on...

    a beautuful poem.

    goes to my fav list
