FORGIVE THE SHIP FOR SINKING

by Monica Suriyage


Forgive your mother for sleeping
she doesn't have much of a say
of when she can dream 
or when you want her opinion

Forgive the brain for thinking
it always takes the blame
for making blood red
and pushing people away

Forgive your lover for leaving
it wasn't with intent to hurt
it was because love could be better
even though you feel unearthed

Forgive the sun for blinding
it doesn't know what else to do
but to keep the darkness away
by pretending it's behind the moon

Forgive the ship for sinking
to stay about water
is to be the likes of Jesus
and that can't be expected of anyone
