Pre-Approved

The doing to someone else by others,
Is okay until that day comes...
When that same thing done,
To them comes.
But...
With a difference.

When one does to others,
What had been done...
Offended others become.
Believing what they do,
Should be forgotten to forgive...
With a doing pre-approved.

'Some things we said,
To say intentionally to ruin someone's life...
Was done so long ago.
Why should they feel still embittered? '

~Who knows.
Why some people can't let go,
Of being character assassinated years ago...
To me is childish.~

'Me too.
Just because we destroyed their relationships.
And devastated their integrity with accusations,
Who would think they would 'still' hold that against us.
That's being too sensitive, if you ask me.
By now they should have gotten over it.
I know I have.'

~Some people don't appreciate what being 'Christian' means.~

A well articulated and beautifully penned narrative poem, a food for thought. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
