Forgiveness is not a race:
there are no lanes in this pool,
and no one moment comes
when we can be declared victorious.
Some days it's a slow slog
upstream through jello,
or we're fighting strong currents;
some days it's even chocolate pudding --
no hope of seeing
where the finish line,
or even the edges might be.
But we keep on slogging,
building muscles and endurance
that will one day set us free.
