    FORGIVENESS
    *******************

    Higher school of learning
    Curriculum of love
    Forgiving student body
    Principled and good

    Forgive my condition
    Contain your disdain
    Living for a minute,
    All I've known is pain

    Hanging in the balance ~
    Before judgment day
    Three strikes... you're out
    Man, what hell to pay

    Mortal sins betray me
    God, forsaken man
    Hear me wail in prayer,
    Is anybody there...

    We always need God's forgivness
    though we often forget to step
    up and ask for it, or we choose another
    route.
    I felt this. Good one, Poet.

    It is a good thing that God's forgiveness is permanent and without as much condition.... as people we impose restrictions on our forgiveness of others.

    When we strive to understand others, it is easier to forgive.
    When we begin to embrace the person who looks back at us from the mirror, we are well on our way to forgiving self.

    I really liked your poem. It made me think.
    I like those thinking poems the best.

    Peace

    Andrew
