No Art To Forgive

No Art To Forgive short poem

A flaw I discovered in self,
But never made any amend,
Then why can’t I bring to forgive?
A blemish I found in a friend.

Who am I but a lesser mortal?
I too flounder to hold my self,
I fall I arise I make I break,
I am lost and I too need help.

Who am I but a devious mind?
I too greed for worldly delights,
I scam I plan I desire I demand,
I too need to quell my fights.

Who am I but a shallow soul?
I too wander away from ethics,
I love I hate I reason I debate,
I create a chaos I need to fix.

Forgiveness is a blatant virtue,
We all have within us.
One soul stirring moment,
And it’s evident without fuss!

So, I bow down on my knees,
Seek forgiveness from the Divine,
Sow in me a heart that forgives,
Move me from darkness to sunshine!

Some soul-searching, or self-chastisement. But you have indirectly touched on the quintessence of human nature, its flaws and inconsistencies. That’s real life captured in rhymes, worthy poem.

@CharuGulati it’s not hard to forgive but it’s hard to forget. Just let go of the past and forgive others! It was a great poem! I enjoyed reading!

I thought it belonged to only I, But you have claimed it for yourself. You say I should hurry up and die, That I’m only good for killing myself. I don’t wish to hear you, But you stole my hands.

No Rescue short poem

Civil war: Again you are visiting the childhood.A green pond. Smoke filled eyes ask, what was a home? A black city of white hills. You were climbing on dreams to reach a baby moon. And the night was very long,
