The Truth Is

I’ve had
a hard time
with forgiveness.
Revenge is
easier. Or
secret resentment.
Last year, I read
four forgiveness books
talked to some serious
Christians and Jews
a Buddhist Muslim Hindu Sikh
I don’t intuitively
turn the other cheek
don’t know how
and I’m talking about
pure pettiness
not wars or Big Wrongs
I’d like to learn
thought one way might be
to say the word
three times a day
forgive
forgive
forgive
