The Price of Forgiveness Is

What is forgiveness?
Well, I know
because it is me.
Forgiveness slowly trickles
out of the tiny corners
of your tired mouth.
It spills itself
onto your chest,
where your breath is
unevenly pumping.
Forgiveness is
what occupies the space
where doubt has died,
filling that void
that once held vileness.
Forgiveness frees
the forgiver,
allowing the forgiven
to reevaluate intent
and research the source.
Forgiveness is just saying,
"I remember
what makes us similar,
and I want to understand more."
