The attribute of the strong, not for the weak-w

To err is human, to persist is the devil’s way
God forgives us, so some act in a godlike way 
Though seems difficult, but a good doctrine
To err is human, to forgive is divine with option.

Suppose a man slaps you on your left cheek
Offer the right one? Will you hit him back?
Perseverance is the diabolical two-way notion
Err is human; to forgive is divine with option.

Message of the English bard in Measure for Measure
“Judge not lest ye be judged” of Matthew’s Chapter
The Duke judging Isabella’s forgiveness notion
To err is human, to forgive is divine with option.

Ireland case of wrong breast cancer operation
Diagnosis of the cancer is hard said the surgeon
Reacted pathologist, smile, unfair to sue surgeon
To err is human; to forgive is divine with option.

Laugh when you can, apologize when you ought,
But let the things go of what you cannot convert.


First place win in:
Contest: To err is human forgive divine by Audrey Carey

    How dissappointing! Psyche!!! LOl! I love your philosophy and truthfulness, not so much a religious poem but a poem of being humble throughout all trials and tribulations, please keep writing!
