Forgive

He said, she said

You didn’t, they did

The ground outside is icy

You may fall

Will it help to blame the ice at all?

The flu I have

You had it first

Yours wasn’t as bad

I have it worse

Grandma went a little crazy

Her great uncle’s eyes were hazy

Now mom’s in her room countin’ daisies

She’s the only one that sees them

I better go on meds just in case

I can always point to their mistakes

My kids have trouble

I say sorry, knowing

My gift to them is finally showing

It just got passed from generations

That’s the nature of relations

Each one can blame the other

But can forgiveness overrule

When we know we all are guilty

And in our hearts have played a fool?

dVersepoetspub.com prompt is blame and forgiveness. Such a wide subject! So I went a little lite!

(Lk 6:37 NIV) “Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

    We are all guilty. There’s plenty of opportunity for forgiveness.

    I like these lines, sound and sense: “You may fall
    Will it help to blame the ice at all?”
