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.
