Forgiveness

Forgiveness is such a fragile thing,
offered in hand like a delicate sand dollar.

If the hand clenches with unresolved anger,
the brittle sea creature crumbles.

Offering your absolution
is pure grace.

It takes a strong charity of spirit
to let go of your pain,
and grant clemency to another.

When two hearts reconcile,
harmony is restored,
and reparations can be made.

Take heed:

Stitch the torn pieces with care.
The fabric will show a scar,
but will hold together if you take care.
