(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope in not holding back the love of forgiving myself through ‘The Forgiveness King,’ Jesus Christ.”)
You can’t forgive yourself. What will it take
for you to say, “All I’ve done wrong, All done?”
You weren’t You back then. You were you heartbreak,
feared days of sun. Now, you’re You through The Son.
Can I forgive myself, forgetting me
of the past who lived for the victim trap?
I thought, “Look! I’m on The Cross! Can’t you see
what’s done to me? Save me!” Christ said, “Mine! Scrap!”
“Forgive yourself for I forgive it all,”
says Jesus. “Listen not to others ‘blame.'”
If He forgave it “Father God,” our call
is, “So do I forgive it all the same.”
“Forgive them, Father. They know not The Fee.”
He Paid It, we cash It, “I forgive me.”
