Forgiveness Sake - Poem by Janet Willemien Mulligan

Every time we speak
It's as if because I'm too weak.
Turning to me you seek,
And wanting to make me feel complete.
A solid warrior stands up tall
He is afraid that one day he must fall
It is in that moment that he builds a wall.
He no longer can carry the weight of it all.
Though he is not of due praise,
My actions are somehow delayed.
Emotional ties filtering the haze
Dark clouds surround the blaming stage.
Judgement tells me about the wise old sage
His story shines light on the days.
I believe I'm supposed to be swayed
To let go, and say, 'Come what may'
Because the light of truth is not prey
Forgiveness knows me better than I can play
For it knows I'll always love you anyway.
