To Forgive - Poem by Gordon Jerome

The night whispers freedom for those longing for such release
As daylight succumbs to the very darkness of its own existence
For neither would survive without the ever presence of the other
As within us all there is a darkness that must taste its own release
And yet also must surrender to the light, which nourishes our soul
There is a delicate balance to be sought between the good and bad
For one can be blinded by the darkness living wholly in the light
And a life lived in darkness cannot hope to see in lights intensity
For how does one enjoy the taste of victory without that of defeat
Or judge another least judgment be also waged upon themselves
I heed you this warning as you seek out life’s delicate balance
Show forgiveness to all those who bring darkness into your life
For you may be the light of hope that shines brightly into theirs
“closing thought”
Just one simple phrase:
Forgive me all, as I forgive all of you
