Forgiving Faults | revivedwriter

Before we can forgive the faults in others, we have to forgive the faults in ourselves. I have never seen this truth expressed more beautifully than in the following poem written by revivedwriter….

I yearn to show more love,

But sometimes when I try

The feelings are flavored with basil —

 

Maybe, what I find myself hating

Is something I dislike within myself,

And forgiveness of this fault

Is the path to greater love

For both of us.
