Forgiven - Poem by Mary Nagy

Will I ever be forgiven
for simply being born?
Will I ever forgive myself
or will I always feel this torn?

It's easy forgiving others.
I feel they need my love.
Then why do I only feel I deserve
the angry push and shove?

To see what should be done.
It's all so clear to me.
But telling my heart to feel that way...
It simply just can't be.

I'll keep on pushing forward
throughout this awkward strife.
One day we'll all be happy
and laugh at this crazy life.

    Short but sweet and to the point. I liked it alot. This may not have been your intent, but it really makes me wonder if man is born inherently evil. And if so, can we ever be redeemed? (Report)Reply

    Hello Mary,
    I like this poem of yours. It has a lot of feeling when one is reading the read of it. It seems to have that something special included too, yet only one can tell, what that special thing is within. Thank you for sharing.
    With Respect,
    Jodilee
