a short poem about forgiveness

She collected her tears
in a silver spoon,
then flicked them heavenwards,
in a baptism to the moon.

She gathered her obscenities
in an old mason jar,
threw it in the garbage
asking for salvation from afar.

She accumulated others’ pains,
setting them aflame,
in an act of atonement,
for her participation in the shame.

She boxed her degrading words
stacking them away,
in an act of contrition
for her reprehensible ways.

Repentance and regret,
remorse and sorrow,
she prayed on her knees
from night ‘til the morrow.

The Lord God forgave her
with divine mercy and love,
she underwent transformation,
forever thanking God above.
