A Good Thing

(A note of current reference regarding statements in this work would be the observation that successful forgiveness does not necessarily preclude processes of justice)


Recorded Reading:


A Good Thing

A truism, but true, it be
That we ourselves must truly be
Or know no genuine delight:
Dancers must dance, and writers write

Write of things that others hide
Which habitual abide
In the shadows of each soul
Releasing them, become we whole

Before we do, though, first must see
And forgive uncondit’ionally
Wrong by our enemies have known
And what regret ourselves may own

Till ~ to which we may well be blind ~
Reflected in another’s mind
With sufficient clarity,
We native innocence may see

Both self and past tormentors in,
For only thusly may begin
True forgiveness do its part
In healing up the broken heart

Had poets choice, most likely they
Would give dignified moments play
Leaving th’awkwardly unbest
To an unregarded rest

So a good thing for all it be
We scribble so compulsively
That by it others self may know
And strong in understanding grow


Among us, poets are ill paid. In order to continue her work, this one currently lives in her minivan, on an income of a fraction of our nation’s poverty level. If her work has moved, enabled or uplifted you, your contribution to this effort may be made at:
