Forgiveness Poem

Forgiveness

An angel named Forgiveness
Traveled from mind to mind
Teaching people how to move forward
And leave the past behind
She reminded them of their regrets
Taught that perfection is rare
And humanity makes mistakes
Despite their love and care

She tried to stay strong; hold her ground
But she was just not that tough
Soon to be replaced by anger and grudges
Because sorry was no longer enough
Forgiveness was soon out of the picture
As revenge suddenly became right
But she still travelled from mind to mind
Convincing them to see the light

  1. This poem is absolutely beautiful! It comes at the right time, because I really needed to be reminded of the love that is forgiveness. Sometimes, it’s challenging to forgive a person who has hurt you in some way…but it is absolutely necessary to forgive in order to move forward in life. Thank you for sharing this lovely poem!

    These poems and photographs go straight to the key issues of how we live and how we are, on our planet. They seem to me like songs of innocence and experience in the mode of William Blake and the photographs go very well. Beautiful.
    Thanks for visiting my poem blog. I always appreciate your comments.

    Beautiful words to convey the goodness of forgiving!!

  13. Petty Witter says:

    Such wonderful words. To be able to forgive is such a gift, to be unable to forgive, in many ways, a torture that only really hurts the person unable to forgive.

  14. HI Mari,
    your poems are insights to the positive life which still somehwere chases away the negativities present in us.

    The lesson of forgiveness the angel taught
    is condemned always by the Satan’s thought
    The more the angel will try to enlight
    The more the Satan will capture the night
    So..Its upto the humans to follow the lesson
    to fan the agony or throw the weapon,
    as to choose between them what is right
    whether to forgive the other or let the revenge bite.

    Love Naqvee♥

    Touching………..was this written for me? Someone I love is in Heaven now. We needed to forgive and to be forgiven……waited too long to say the words that needed to be spoken. However, I’ve talked to he and God about it. I have forgiven and feel forgiven. Thank you. God Bless!
