of the millions of species that have ever lived

we're blessed above them all

we possess the trait of forgiveness

yet offer it to none


of all the inherent qualities

that set us apart from the animal world

the traits of love and empathy

and forgiveness mark us all


neither intellect nor conscious thought

distinguish our humanity

what separates us most from the animal world

is our willingness to pardon one another


yet ironically that most precious trait

we have, we rarely give

the ability to absolve and love



I hold within me the power to give

that which others cannot:

I forgive all who have done wrong to anyone else;

why can't I, too, be forgiven?
