Free to forgive

A few months ago, I attended a writers'  workshop in Doha. Paula, our facilitator gave us a list of topics to choose from.

This poem was crafted at the workshop. Brigit was sitting to my left and we got chatting.

Here goes...



Free to forgive


Freedom?


Forgiveness?


Which one?


"Forgiveness is Freedom", said Brigit, "It frees your soul."


Aha! I like this idea. I'll use it.


Does forgiveness have a memory or is it amnesiac?


I forgive- you forget


I want my forgiveness back.


Do you even need my forgiveness?


"Forgive yourself first", said Brigit.


And I will.


Then I can be free.
