What is there in the end but forgiveness
And forgiving one’s self.
What is regret when we cannot go back
To change anything?
We only move forward
To more change, the slow breakdown
Of the body, aging and death
There is that, of course–
The quicker one can do it the better:
Live so the need to forgive is less
It is a gift we give when we can and is priceless.
