It’s a daily lesson

Learned by rote

The only way you make it

Is to repeat and repeat

Take the anger, take the pain

And let them go from your captive heart

Like paper boats bobbing away down stream

Send your rehearsed and remembered wrongs

Into oblivion

Forgive again

And again, and again

Every day until they don’t come back

This is how you learn

The art of forgiveness
