Forgiveness: A Poem by Collette Kristevski

Even psychology,
even religion,
even philosophy,
even poetry;
despite the deepest plummets into
and unconscious;
and given my unrelenting introspection,
attempts at humility,
and penance;
even with a tight grip on grace,
divine love,
and sanctification;
and though I remember Your words:
that I must forgive to be forgiven –
I still cannot forgive myself.
And I pray that
forgiving everyone else is enough.
Have mercy on me,
for I have forgotten
how to have mercy on myself.

//Forgiveness, 4/5/2019
//Collette Kristevski
