Don’t answer right away, think about it.
I know you believe you would, but sometimes,
When you are rushed, or angry, or in a hurry,
Sometimes, you might be unkind? Hurtful?
Who hasn’t, right? Often it is at these times
Our patience is insufficient to prevent a word
Or a misdirected action from causing a piercing injury
Creating a scar that lasts forever.
I know you try not to let it happen
But we’re only human, right?
So, here’s the deal: be honest and seek
Being honest and seeking forgiveness for the little slights is as important as it is for bigger hurts.
You should notice,
You should say sorry,
You should forgive
Because you may then notice next time before you act.
I love you. I’m sorry. I forgive.
