The Mystery of Forgiveness

by Phronesus Disegno

Age Group: Adult



The mystery of forgiveness,
That at least for me is true,
Is so complex, yet simple
To be solved without a clue

Is it power over another
Who now sings me a sorrowful song,
Or a chance to take revenge
On the one who did me wrong?

Is it knowing I played some part,
That I'm willing to take some blame?
Yes, what if the one at fault
And the victim are one and the same?

Is it salvaging those relations
Among we who tried to dance,
Is it trust that things will change
If I grant just one more chance?

Is it based on the wisdom earned
When the truth becomes askew,
Whether once- or never-again,
That determines what I should do?

Is it reason enough to forget
When you promise to become adept,
Or an insincere request
That your actions be side-stepped?

Is it recognition of changes
That have come from deep within,
Or just half-hearted desperate pleas
That allow a weasel back in?

It's time for self-reflection
And a time I shall renew;
So complex, and yet so simple
But perhaps one thing is true...

The mystery of forgiveness
To be solved with just one clue,
Just this once it's all about me
And the right thing for me to do.




Author's Notes: Written by me over a year ago, but just now posted here. It's amazing what happens to poetry that I once stuffed in a notebook and then forgot I had the notebook until I did some house-cleaning. :-)
