The guilt and shame of the past,
Comes with a rush of pain.
The grief of regret cuts deep…
Still..forgiveness is available again.

I sometimes feel the pain will last,
And that I will not feel joy or hope gain…
Even after I feel like giving up and weep,
Forgiveness is available again.

We find it hard to forgive when harrassed…
Emotions come quickly like an aeroplane.
Cruel subjugation…hatred reaps…
Forgiveness is available again.

Our days and nights feel overcast,
“Can we escape?” we complain.
Even when these feelings inwardly creep,
Forgiveness is available again.

Can we be steadfast?
With tenderness and elation in our veins?
Allowing peaceful sleep…
Forgiveness is available again.
