Again, forgiveness

 “Forgiveness means it finally becomes unimportant that you hit back.”
Anne Lamott

How to forgive a Mother for dying too soon
How to forgive a Father for living too long
a brother for betrayal
a sister for neglect
The noisy neighbor who causes you to loose sleep

How to forgive your body for enveloping you in pain
How to forgive a friend who thinks you dont need one
the lover who leaves
the lover who never was
The child who quietly screams, they hate you

How to forgive yourself for believing it was true
How to forgive yourself for thinking it was all about you
No betrayal or neglect
No noise or pain

forgiveness   forgiveness   foregiveness

It is a daily ritual
done without ease
again and again and again
