Forgive Me Please

Ek het hierdie gediggie raakgeloop en dit was vir my baie treffend want soms vra ons omverskoning nie omdat ons dit regtig bedoel nie maar meer uit gewoonte.
Die omverskoning vra in die gedig spreuk tot dit wat ons elke dag doen aan ons vriende of ons gesinne sonder om dit altyd agter te kom.

Forgive Me Please

Forgive me please when I act out,
for the pity parties stirred from a lot of self-doubt

Forgive me please for my silent voice,
for being bothered too much by another's noise

Forgive me please when I shout and fuss,
when I talk too much or in great anger cuss

Forgive me please for calling you names,
for gossiping and groaning because we're not the same

Forgive me please when I won't forgive,
God's told me it's wrong so I can rightly live

Forgive me please when I brag and boast;
it's inferior feelings, just so you I'll know

Forgive me please for picking you apart;
the words steal your joy and later tear out my heart

Forgive me please when I worry and fret,
for I'm human like you so don't be upset

Forgive me please when I act better than thou,
for indeed it's an act and you know this now

Forgive me please when I hate what I'm not,
just pray for me for that would mean a lot

Forgive me please when I bring in my past,
and make you pay for what another did last

Forgive me please as I beg your pardon;
for you'll need it too else your heart grow hardened

But most of all, I need God's forgiving touch,
and I know that I am, His Son meant that much…
