Forgiveness

As the time passes by,

You reach the end of the cycles without a thought,

Did you recollect moments good and bad without a sigh,

Bad memories your mind brought.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For the wrong choices you made,

For binging on impulses,

Restarting not too late,

When life ain’t a bed of roses.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For gobbling to bad health,

Time in the hospital wearing out your wealth,

Taking self-control for granted,

Have you been branded?

Have you forgiven yourself?

For not looking at the obvious truth,

Living in self-denial,

With primitive instincts of a brute,

With not a number to dial?

Have you forgiven yourself?

For not loving enough and caring for?

Living in your own world,

What did come out of the lucky draw?

Only going in circles and swirls.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For not forgiving those who wronged you,

A heart full of angst when ambriosa was due,

It wanted to sing everyday a new,

Doused in disdain, good feelings overdue.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For not giving a patient ear,

To those who cared for you every month and year,

Even at your worst, without hatred or fear,

For not being able to hear,

The unconditional love from your near and dear.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For being uncaring,

The hearts you broke,

Mistook stupidity for daring,

Your realization is dust and smoke.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For harsh words, that cut like a sword,

What were you trying to hoard?

Coz you didn’t want to join the herd,

Hatred of others did you want onboard?

Have you forgiven yourself?

For giving a deaf ear to wisdom and advice,

From the wise who didn’t say it with sugar and spice,

Coz you were busy playing with your device,

Time spent with them would have been nice.

Have you forgiven yourself?

For whiling away time with futile,

Not a reason to feel joy and smile,

To understand it, did it take a while,

Now is the time to start and end this turmoil.
