Forgive

Sailing through the desert,
thirsty for a change.
Searching for an answer
to this twisted game.

Listening to whispers,
carried by the breeze,
chanting words of wisdom
directed at me.

Releasing resentments,
as I am advised.
All emotions fly free
and lessons are prized.

Fallen tears from my eyes
bring thunder and rain.
Absolving past blames
while dissolving pain.

I no longer feel parched,
hydrated at last.
Sailing slowly through life,
my voids fill up fast.
