Forgiveness

Posted in Poems by Administrator on the August 13th, 2011

We seek forgiveness
We beg for a chance to repent.
A second chance,
We’d give our lives to get.
We have perfected the second chance,
For we are the imperfect
Bound to commit a mistake.

Cursed with morals and guilt,
Our ultimate policeman.
Protecting us from the demons that lurk within us
We ask the all mighty Supreme…
Our Creator,
For forgiveness.
Forgive us for we have sinned.
We leave the sacred temple;
The Mosque, the Church, or the side of the bed
(Whichever is the preference).
We leave thinking we are free of our sins;
We have given ourselves the second chance;
Just because we thought that we have made our peace with God

Once

Once…..
Not too long ago
I sat on a bed
Looking at a tree
Imagining what life has in store for me
Dreaming away…
A light summer breeze caresses my face
Like a mother’s touch
Wiping away my fears
Telling me everything will be OK.
I have always imagined
That after all is said and done
After my very last breath….
I will go back to that moment,
A young boy….
Sitting on a bed….
Looking at a tree!
