Poem: Forgiveness Brings Hope

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

"Forgiveness Brings Hope" is a poem that shows when we forgive others we find an inner peace.

We don't forget, but we bury the sadness in the far corner of our minds, offering them a chance to soar like an eagle.

It is within this forgiveness that we find a glimmer of hope for ourselves.

I previously wrote this poem, but it fits the word prompt for "Word Prompts Help Creativity ~ Week 46 (Forgiveness). So, I'm including this one for the word prompt series.

"A Heart That Forgives" by Kevin Levar


Forgiveness Brings Hope

As we learn to forgive one’s mistakes,

the feeling of immense joy

trickles with moments of despair.

Offering others, a clean slate,

while we bury the sadness

in the far corners of our mind.

We hold on lightly,

letting them soar like an eagle

to mend their broken wings,

touching our soul with inner peace

giving ourselves a glimmer of hope.


Forgiveness is a gift you give yourself.

— Suzanne Somers
