Through the pure spring of empathy
we understand forgiveness.
The valiant have courage to forgive.

Excuse whomever seeks our pardon.
Forgiving old enmities and injuries
salves the heart.
Times will come on this twisting
journey when we will
welcome reciprocal generosities.
Untying the knots that binds our agonies
may take years,
but the resolution will prove its rewards.

Success is sometimes wrought
by the nobility of compassion,
just as victory through the genius of forgiveness.
