Atonement- Sooner than Ever

Atonement- Sooner than Ever

Atonement- Sooner than Ever

To err is human, to forgive is divine

Goes the old adage, since forever in time

A sorry is a simple word, an attempt to undo wrongs

When spoken from the dept of heart, it’s a soulful song

But are words enough? Does an apology ever suffice?

For causing harm and hurt, leaving behind feelings not so nice

Sins weigh heavy on the wrongdoer’s soul, atonement seems the only light

Undoing the wrongs, it’s in our righteous actions one would find true delight

We dream of leading joyous lives,

And leaving behind beautiful memories

Riches are vain, if all we’ve caused is pain and dread

No point repenting, no fun drowning lone in bed

Accepting one’s folly is the first step, a task not so menial

Reach out with your heart, don’t live in denial

It’s never too late to start, never too late to own up

Undo your wrongs before your time’s up

Heal with your actions, mend broken hearts

Love and efforts can bring together those far apart

In atonement is peace and calm; just as in a shrine

To err is human, to forgive is divine
