MONDAY’S POEM: Forgiveness

May 19, 2014 Leave a comment

This is an area I continue to work on in my life. It’s likely an endless task. Of the five elements from Traditional Chinese Medicine, wood is my dominant one. An¬†aspect of this is I am quick to anger. The balance for this is forgiveness. And it starts with me!

So, for all you wood-type people out there:


It can only begin inside;
Self is forgiven.
And what is inside?
The mirror of All.

It extends to the other;
She is forgiven.
Is She inside?
Om, Namaste.

It flows to the beloved;
Yes, They are forgiven.
Can the truly loved do wrong?
The very heart of All.

It moves to the murderer;
Even He is forgiven!
Is He inside?
Oh, yes, my son.

Even He is you.
