Sometimes those things squashing the soul are no good

Forgive

The vine strangles me

I can't breathe.

The mustard seed

becomes a mountain

squashing me.

Nails, a spear,

twisting in my heart.

I thirst

I hunger

in my own

despair

Until...

I forgive

As I have been forgiven

And pray

that others will forgive me.

We did not know
