| forgiveness is something that I am a little uneasy with. Maybe because i've been blessed by so many from my loved ones. Sometimes I feel a little undeserving of it. |
Some have told me that it's fine to accept it. Though I feel at times that I'm abusing everytime I make a mistake. Mistakes that I am trying to fix. And maybe I'm not trying hard enough? I don't know.
after reading your piece and the comment from krs, I'm a little closer to being comfortable with forgiveness.
Thank you for posting.

Some folks just don't have the courage (to forgive) - while other folks, sadly, don't care (to forgive). I would like to believe that forgiveness is both given and earned - and sometimes, not in that order. |
Your poem was direct and to the point. There were no hidden meanings, or clouded symbolism. Those things have their time and place when writing - and this piece needs neither of those things.
I loved this line...
Forgiveness is enlightenment
All to true. The absence of suffering and desire (enlightenment) cannot be had without forgiveness.
Thank you very much for sharing!
