To Hope for Forgiveness


Ignorance breeds anger

Anger breeds distrust

So I walk away.

Understanding comes slowly

Remorse with sorrow is pain filled

Forgiveness a dream

Yet hope blooms eternal.

Warm hearth beckons

Will transgressions be forgotten

Will the door open

Or will it remain firmly closed

Love forever out of reach

Ending life as known

While darkness descends
