Forgiveness

a poem by

Jerell Scott

You can’t hide guilt, from prying eyes
It shows on every side of your soul
To want to be right,
But act in full awareness of wrong

Is not acceptable for one who seeks forgiveness
You have to realize the basis
Of confession is to regain trust
Something valued in every decent human

But not as easily given as gained
Do not fear the repercussions of healing
When love is what triggers its being
You have to relent anger, resentment, and all else

That ails you on the sometimes long and precarious road to
Forgiveness

Here another one
