Teach Me

teach me png

Teach me to laugh,

and you’ll teach me to cry. 

Teach me to think,

and you’ll teach me to die. 

Hold it against me,

and you’ll teach me to lie. 

Forgive me for all,

and I’ll only ask why.

I Forgive You

10-22-13-psalm-116-1-12

It occurred to me today

that I have never

forgiven anyone,

for anything,

ever.

I might have said,

“I forgive you”,

but now I know

that was a lie. 

I forget,

I don’t forgive. 

I don’t think I can. 

I don’t think I know how. 

And I don’t think

I’m changing.
