Life seeks to crush the Soul out of a Man,
Leaving nothing but the animal behind;
None expressing Conpassion,
They, themselves, having lost humanity.
Pitfall after pitfall does Each find,
Evil gossimar coating every human joy;
Leeching all effort for betterment,
Wanting only to destroy what they cannot be.
Man surrender just to ease the agony,
Listening to the promise of better;
If only they will do to others,
The destruction done unto themselves.
One, though, remains different from them,
Refusing to forgive;
Insisting the animals suffer as he suffered,
For all the rest of Eternity.

I have often faced great opposition, and it never mattered to Me. I knew this opposition would suffer as much as Me; I have never known forgiveness, and it is too late now!

|Well, we live in the hell of our own making...without knowing the reason behind the 'now it is too late,' one can't comment. As long as memory lasts, forgiveness may be too difficult to achieve. Yet without memory, forgiveness is pointless. I haven't conquered that one myself yet.

|I agree with the above reviews. As "Old Farts" Socrates and Willy S. implied: "Forgive Thyself!" "And it will follow that...." So "I" can not give you '10' until you do.|

|Well written and true. But there is always room for forgiveness it is not to late. Doesn't mean you have to forgive everything though. Gregg|
