Seventy Times Seven

hug

Forgiveness heals, unlocking doors to free
forgiver and forgiven from themselves.
Without regard for penitential plea,
forgiveness heals.

But what to do when indignation swells
the heart with pride?  Unbind and let it be.
Again, again, again, as pride rebels …

release the grip of animosity
and leap into the realm where stillness dwells.
Extended to a radical degree,
forgiveness heals.
