FORGIVENESS


Some say
Forgiveness is necessary
Else your claim to faith
And devotion to God
 Is a farce

Really?
Have you been wronged ever?
Abused
Lied to
 Had your trust broken
Deceived?

Really?
Have you ever been subjected to
Betryal
Of the body
Mind and 
Soul?

Really?
You do not seek justice?
Why then 
Every civilized society
 Has 
Courts
Laws
Lawyers
Prisons?
 Legal systems and
Judiciary?

These monuments and systems 
Exist
 because
The wrongs need to be 
Accepted
Addressed and 
Require repentance
.
The path to forgiveness
My friend
Is always 
Through Justice

Else
We would not have a 
Durga
Slaying the demon
Mahishasura.

Yes, once justice
Is meted out
The soul is at peace
And henceforth
Forgiveness flows out
Like a natural  waterfall.
