Forgiveness Is An Effort


Retaliation comes in spurts;
Forgiveness is brought with efforts.
If you don’t forgive kin or friends
You will break the bridge made for them.
If you don’t forgive a stranger
You will miss a bridge he would make.
Forgiveness maintains harmony;
Retaliation will break it.

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
