Great Word Forgive - Poem by Gajanan Mishra

Let us tolerate the offence of others and
See that no punishment be given to
The wrong-doer here or here-after.

Forgiveness is a virtue and a great word, remember
That develops in a person who does not expect
Any reward or wish to do wrong to the wrong-doer.
