If a married man or a woman committed adultery,
In the eyes of many people they are absolutely guilty,
Especially if both party did the same thing,
They will condemned for their immoral doing.

For secret affairs revealed everyday,
Painful heart crying in deep misery,
Asking questions why they did it anyway,
And family will be broken and divided, really.

We’re all human and nobody’s perfect in this big world,
We committed mistakes and we try to control it, if we could,
I know we are all aware of the decisions that we make in life,
Adultery is a sin but, who are we not to forgive our husbands and wives?

Just give them a chance to prove that they really changed,
To ask forgiveness to their love ones and plan to begin,
a new life for the sake of the people we cared for,
To bring back the pieces of the sins they've done before.

7th Place Winner

    Congrats on your win Maria! Yours are words that make for reflection - when betrayal occurs the hurt tends to obscur all the good that went before. But if we see past the hurt, then many marriages can be salvaged. Well penned.

    There are hidden blessings and healings all wrapped up in the package of forgiveness, to not forgive would be missing out on the blessings. Thanks for posting Maria. Carl,

    I do agree with your wise thoughts, dear Maria...although adultery is really a very sad situation, altering anyway the priceless backbone of a true relationship. But living is so difficult...Thanks a lot for your congratulations! Best wishes to you too!:) Love, Hanitra

    Oh yes Maria. Forgiveness is very important and you have spelled it out so nicely. Hugs Michael

    I think if the person has been a very good spouse and they have done this kind of thing, you should try to forgive them. But if it happens again, off with their heads. hahaha. Good one!

    You have a great poem here. Sometimes it is hard to forgive when they keep doing the same thing over and over again. We can forgive, but we never forget. Many blessings. Lucilla
