Forgiveness

It was time to let the bygones to be bygone, And this they meant from the cockles of their hearts. They felt that the injuries they had to endure were done, It was too much to think over again about the hurts. They avoided any thoughts bearing a grudge, To start stressing over the bitterness would be crass. Thoughts of unforgiveness would once again make them judge And this will start the sullenness from the grass. It was too much to think about the hurts again, After all they felt that it was weakening. They had absolutely nothing more to gain, Because they realized that it was time for healing. They understood that to bear the hatred would confine Their inner peace, but to forgive would be divine

Mpho,Welcome to Poetry soup, I hope you enjoy the community. Here, you will find friendly poets who enjoy supporting one another. I myself, enjoy reading and commenting those who want to be read. The only time I give constructive criticism is when a poet desires it. However, if for some reason the poem is not my field I will guide you to someone who is more qualified than I. Stop by and read one of my poems if you like. My poems are not perfect, but I have a feeling you might like one. I encourage you to check out the contest page and read to receive comments. Tell me a little about your poetic skills if you like. It will be my pleasure to follow and read every poem you post from here on :) We are Lucky To Have you. Your New Poet Friend @-> LINDA <-@

Hi Linda I also like reading and writing poetry. I am not a perfect poet but I write poetry in different format-mostly sonnets, about topics that I feel strongly about or a point of view I wish to express. I have been an avid follower of poetrysoup. I will certainly read your poems.
