Forgiveness - Poem by Pierre J. Jean-Louis
It is taught by the bible,
for centuries, encouraged by moral figures,
and yet, it has to be observed. . .
like it's human nature not to forgive.
So many times, we overslept and missed the train;
so many times, we closed our eyes and folded our arms;
so many times, we've butted into grounded stones;
so many times, we've been at fault ourself;
so many times, we've found excuses. . .
Yes. . ., a lot of times. . .
How many times, we've understood?
how many times, we've been sympathetic?
how many times, we've been fair?
how many times, we've been helpful?
how many times, we've said "we care"?
how many times, we've forgiven?
Oh. . . ! How many times?
