Forgiveness- January 18, 2014 So many situations that have occurred throughout my life have caused me to take from them: painful, insightful realizations. I've experienced times when I couldn’t understand what was happening, or why it had to happen. And sometimes, they still linger in my thoughts. Those moments often plague my memories, and at times, they still bother me. But, I’ve come to understand that forgiving someone doesn’t mean forgetting the pain that they have caused you. It’s more of knowing, yet accepting that what they’ve done or what has happened, happened in the past. It is being able to move on, and being able to look beyond that past, into right now. It is letting go of anger for what they’ve done and for what has happened, rather than completely forgetting the hurt caused by those moments. Forgiveness is being able to trust again and to give second chances, because mistakes shape our imperfect world. But to accept the mistake, it to move on.

1. Forgiveness

Forgiveness

 

Hurt, is a pain of betrayal;

In no way can it be pardoned.

An agony of torment so strong,

To break the strength of trust.

It is a suffering tears can't comfort,

A hole never to be mended.

The wound is temporary,

Though the damage is forever.

Frustration prevails in the confusion,

That such misery be of existence.

Unthinkable actions to cause such sorrow,

Never to be undone.

This life is a realm of imperfection,

In which mistakes constantly transpire.

But to think of second chances, 

Is to believe in the faith of forgiveness. 

 

Forgiveness- January 18, 2014

I wrote this poem because so many situations that have occurred throughout my life have caused me to take from them: painful, insightful realizations. I've experienced times when I couldn’t understand what was happening, or why it had to happen. And sometimes, they still linger in my thoughts. Those moments often plague my memories, and at times, they still bother me. But, I’ve come to understand that forgiving someone doesn’t mean forgetting the pain that they have caused you. It’s more of knowing, yet accepting that what they’ve done or what has happened, happened in the past. It is being able to move on, and being able to look beyond that past, into right now. It is letting go of anger for what they’ve done and for what has happened, rather than completely forgetting the hurt caused by those moments. Forgiveness is being able to trust again and to give second chances, because mistakes shape our imperfect world. To forgive, is to truly accept that the mistake has been made, and to decide that the grudge you hold against the pain can cease to resent the person or moment in life, that had caused it.
