Again. Swallow.

.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Let the words not
Pass one’s lips.
Take the consequences
Into the self.
Swallow yellow bitterness.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.

Forgiveness only
Gives relief to
The transgressor.
The words of revenge
Crave cursed release.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Such a relief it would be,
To speak the unspeakable.
Kindness requires
They be swallowed,
Compassion absorbs.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Forgiveness takes
Responsibility for
All of it. Forgiveness
Absorbs the guilt,
Whether felt or not.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Forgiveness endures
The pain, silent.
Forgiveness consumes
Love, swallowed
With the unspoken.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
All blended together.
Forgiven with love,
Vengeance swallowed,
With love. Responsibility,
Wrong half-way gestures, swallowed.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Swallow all that has been
Transformed by remembrance
Into the yellow bitter,
Daily forgiveness renewed,
Every memory tainted, bitter.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Everyday another consequence,
Every second of every
Night part of the sequence,
New moments self creating
Endless perpetuation.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Forgiveness for what
Cannot be undone,
Forgiveness for what
Cannot be unsaid,
Forgive the forgotten.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Pretense has no power.
All has been swallowed,
The bitter bile, the love,
The responsibility never
Accepted, love words.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Swallowed, the hope not there.
Forgive, though never asked.
Forgive with compassion.
Relieve guilt, though gilded
With hypocrisy and lies.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
Daily, minute by minute,
Second, by second,
Forgiveness requires
Renewal. Over and over,
Yes, let it pass,
Again. Yes, let it go,
Again. Say nothing,
Again. Swallow.
Eat the yellow bile.
.
That I have swallowed it all,
Is not your fault.
I swallowed the lies.
I swallowed forgiveness.
I swallowed our love.
