Written for: Poetic Asides 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 11
For today’s prompt, write a forgiveness poem. Earlier this month, I shared an apology poem prompt, but it’s one thing to apologize; it’s something else entirely to forgive someone, whether they’ve apologized or not. That’s the point of this prompt: forgiveness. Write about forgiving. Or write about not forgiving. If you’re stuck, maybe write your forgiveness poem as a response to your apology poem.
Sometimes there is no
not when lies
are constant for no reason,
and remorse not shown.
