perdition of the soul

Forgive me
for my impatience,
forgive me for stupidity
forgive for not showing love,
forgive for rigidity of the mind

and perdition of the soul.

Forgive me for tricks of the trade
and life's blind hawk
         of the spirit

forgive me for forgetting
     how to forgive

     and how to forget.

[Joseph Ceravolo {1934-1988}, 'Forgive', from Collected Poems]
