American National Suicide Prevention Hotline: 1-800-273-8255

Forgive me        
God            
I have been arrogant,   
Thinking I am smarter than    
Most people I meet.

Forgive me       
God           
I did not remember   
The people I meet   
Are your creation.   
Each one unique       
With talents
I may not have.

Forgive me       
God           
I did not realize   
The people you create   
Can hear my thoughts   
And avoid me.

Forgive me       
God           
I know I am smarter   
Than my father       
Except I am not.   
And it is too late   
To make friends with my father.

Forgive me       
God           
I thought my mother   
Could not think like me.   
Except she can
I am sorry I do not call her
Much.

Forgive me       
God           
For being mean to my brothers,
Now they are too busy     
With their own families.

Forgive me       
God           
For thinking       
My sisters are weak,   
They have the real strength
To face life.

Forgive me       
God           
For thinking       
I knew better       
Than my wife,      
Now I need her advice.

Forgive me       
God           
For ignoring my relatives ,
Now I cannot reach them.

Forgive me       
God           
For taking advantage   
Of my friends,       
Now they are nowhere to be seen.

Forgive me       
God           
For not paying much attention
To acquaintances,       
Now I am acquainted         
With my loneliness.

Forgive me
God
For looking enviously at non-acquaintances.
Looking at the life they have,
While I wait
For your forgiveness.

Forgive me
God
I have been ignorant
Of the proper way
To treat people.

Forgive me
God
I did not remember,
Life is not about being smarter
But about being warmer
To my fellow human beings.

Forgive me
God
My son
Doesn't like
The way I think.
And I don't know how
To make friends with my son.

Forgive me
God
I don't understand my daughter,
And I don't try any more.

Forgive me
God
My nephews
Are in a new world,
And I don't know how to reach them.

Forgive me
God
My nieces are even
Harder to understand,
And they have no time to understand me.

Forgive me
God
I cannot reach out
To people
I have ignored for so long.

Forgive me
God
For trying to find
Old friends
For I do not know
How to make new friends.

Forgive me
God
For having a gruff countenance.
It is set into my face
And I don't know how to
Change it now.

Forgive me
God
I did not realize
My inner voice
Is your voice.

Forgive me       
God
This loneliness
Is getting
To me
I wish to renounce it!
