Yielding Forgiveness - Poem by Sheldon Allen Saluta

Have you ever experienced, timely, someone asking forgiveness from you?
Or have you been asking forgiveness from someone? He awes you
It’s one of the cycles of life like ghetto
But have you ever done those two?

This crucial events of life mostly happen everyday, it is a life
But it could probably jeopardize your pride by your great knife
Sometimes, it is too arduous to say “Sorry”
And “You’re Forgiven” is blurry

Some would probably initiate confrontation but that’s a big mistake
Mistakes that could never been done, there’s no need to overtakes
“Putting fuel to the fire” is the right verse
Coz it makes the commotion worst

But I believe everything could be fixed at the right time and at the right place
Direct confrontation is futile coz it’s too hard to face
Patience is the door of forgiveness, not gates
Time is healing, it worth the waits
