The Flower of Forgiveness

The dark age of hate has banished from the land

How grand that the war is over.

A child walks to the woods filled with clovers,

The child looks terrified as she stops and looks.

An open field with nothing but burned grass,

As the child passes through the ashes.

She sees a colorful flower,

The flower is not sad, but glad.

The child looks confused at the flower,

Ina field filled with hate and yet the flower is happy?

How come?

Is it from the end of the war?

No it must be something more,

It cannot be from the war.


The child thinks,

But cannot see why the flower is happy.

The flower so beautifully blooming,

Could it be?

She looks at the field,

Possibly could be.

She looks at the flower,

Yes it must be.


The flower blooms and shines,

Flower of divine.

Oh how holy, how serene you must be,

To forgive those that cannot see.

The beauty of hope and faith is what we seek,

Flower of Forgiveness.

How generous, how pleasant of you,

To show us through the way we must look.
