What is forgiveness?

Is it just one simple word that brings back happiness?

Or is it something that we sometimes pretend?

I believe it's something we can't always comprehend.

If someone hits you.

What would you do?

Would you forgive them and turn the other cheek?

Or look for the revenge that you seek?

But what if the situation was greater?

Do you think you could forgive later?

What if someone harmed your family or your friend?

Would you forgive them then?

This world is filled with so much hate.

But just an ounce of true forgiveness could change that fate.
