Forgiveness

Shadows cannot kill

only if you really want them to

then they could

if you allow them to

but who are they?

These black-draped “sinners”

the self image’s mournful chorus

plodding so heavily away from the light of living,

dragging their heavy chains

marching in a slow procession

to honour their grim master

lord of death?

Who is the one who would willingly take upon himself the burden of guilt?

But what about those who are committed to dying?

What is a shadow mean to the living?

Shadows hide away from light

Screened from radiance behind the reality of the body

Just walk into a light filled room.

Step into untainted light

At once the shadow just vanishes.

Where does it disappear to?

Back inside?

Touch any one of these with the gentle hand of forgiveness,

and watch the chains fall away

along with your own.

See him throw aside the black funeral robe

and hear him laugh at death.

The sentence that shadows of guilt would lay upon him,

he can escape

with your forgiveness.
