Repentance

Repentance

So wrong was done, where do you stand?
Sometimes justice is shifting sand
Were you the sinner or victim here
What caused this, was it love or fear?

Step back now you’re not on the fence
And leave the garden, this makes sense
Perspective needed now for all
The answer won’t be in a brawl

Forgiveness and a time to think
Tolerant thoughts the missing link
A heart that’s ready to let things go
So hard sometimes, yes we all know

But never did bitterness help one drop
And crimes with this food will not stop
Be bold enough to step outside
Please try, for wounds you should not hide

And then when faced, a time for hope
A shift in gradient on life’s slope
The upward struggle begins to change
And help comes in, at first feels strange

So if you’ve found what makes a man
Then open-hearted form your plan
Repentance and the will to thrive
Will help you fly, not just survive
