The Path of Forgiveness

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Without the tender touch of forgiveness,

we walk the earth in denial.

Unable to face our inadequacies, we remain defiant,

until we can acknowledge our imperfections.


Without forgiveness we would swallow

the repeated follies in our lives,

the bittersweet mistakes of misthought and action,

until bloated with destruction.


Manifest impairment can only result,

from this accumulation of doubt.

It is then the core of malignancy,

the dark growth of ending inside us.


Forgiveness is the eraser of hate,

the pacifying hand of loves potential.

Without it we carry our demise like a ticking bomb,

an ever-present reminder of our humanity.


How sweet the sigh of forgiveness,

the opened heart of acceptance and balance.

Our souls become enriched with truth,

when we release the need for self-effacement.


When we find the path of forgiveness through understanding,

we become free, ultimately empowered with reality.

When we can forgive our darkest fears,

they reside within us no longer.
