Forgiveness


I drown in a formidable sea
of unforgiveness.
My heart bulges from yet another
of your thoughtless indiscretions.
I vacillate, like a shuttlecock,
between martyrdom and release.
My inability to forgive keeps me
mired in a world of limitation.
Forgiveness is not the
condoning of misdeeds.
It is a personal act of love
that releases harmful anger and irritation
that you no longer wish to own.
I choose to honor myself
and cast off my weighted shoes.
I float like a feather
in a breath of wind,
freeing my burdened soul and
cleansing my emotional body
from this undeserved onus.
Darkness is replaced by healing light
as I spring forward into virgin territory,
toughened by experience,
but, refreshed and titillated by
exciting, unlimited possibilities.
