If You Don't Forgive - Poem by Ojok Isaac

I know a man who forgives not
Who may do but not forget

He never smiled or laughed
He was ever gloomy

Everytime he sees me
His face changes to that of a dog

Whenever he meets me
He sharply diverge to the bush

I know of this man
Who spent his life hating

Hating those who were progressing
And he died poor, young, and ugly

I know of a lesson I learnt
Forgiveness is like gold

If you forgive, and you forget
Your life will be shinny like the sun

Hatred only hurts you
But love and forgiveness heal
