Forgiveness

by Violet Raven   Nov 3, 2020


Can I be merry
while full of sin?
I dont even think
God would let me in.

Jesus wouldn't weep
for someone full of scars
not even the bluest fires
could burn these shining stars.

Cumulonimbus clouds
storm every other week.
I've done enough crying
forgiveness is what I seek.

My home is this earth
that consists of hell.
Dirty black wings are
why these angels fell.

    There is something neat and note worthy of a rhyming poem of 4 stanzas. Why is this? Is it because one can spread an idea with an, introduction, description, effect and then an ending? Sonnets offer similar segmentation, a way of presenting a situation in a few different ways, then offering a conclusion wrapped up in a summary. Anyway, I digress. I like a poem that questions, even if it is rhetorical. It places the reader right away in different shoes. Would God/Jesus accept a person who bore the scars of pain and suffering? That is a question that some would shout an answer, but I think this is not the place for me to answer that. Sometimes poems are just ramblings of the mind - an organised mind dump, if you will. I find when I am troubled/bored/stressed I can churn out a rhyming poem of four stanza and feel all the better for it, or at least, one step closer to it.

    Take care
