Pillars Of Life.

Rating: 4.8

Very well known proverb
we read in our school days
is 'To err is the human;
to forgive, divine'.
Simply meant all humans
commit sins, mistakes, errors,
may be less or more
in their life span,
a truth none can decline.

This motivates one
to forgive another,
continue the link
as before,
or else the relationship
would be bitter.

Mistakes, misunderstandings
in words and actions by one
should be adjudged rightly by another.
When some facts are not known,
discuss with minds open,
clarify all apprehensions
and confusions,
any disagreement
be conveyed politely,
judge not silently,
like Ex parte court decision
that may end in
erratic conclusion.

Exclusion of persons
by judging more and more
would envenom inter-personal
connection,
ultimately leaving one alone.
Love, forgiveness, acceptance
and compromise are the main
pillars of life that can only atone
without jeopardising association.

Not easy to forgive but one must give it a try for our own peace of mind. Nice poem.

Forgiveness is truly a sign of personal growth. To go beyond our animal shell and something greater. A beautiful work.

Judged by our actions we are loved, or ignored.
