China Post (1984)

April, 1995
What Comes After Forgiving
     What comes after forgiving is not
     so easily said, and even harder to do.
     It is a renewed willingness to give
     freely after you say, "I forgive you."
     Now "But" is the unsaid word,
     the word which is seldom found.
     "I just can't forget" is the thought,
     the grudge that is dragged around.
     Yet I, as well as you, know
     that "can't" can never be.
     Your "can't" is simply an excuse
     for you not to forgive me.
