victims say their offender

doesn't deserve forgiveness


none of us, not a single one

deserves to be forgiven

were too sublimely rotten

to deserve anything at all

but thats the point of it

forgiveness cant be earned

it is entirely undeserved

a gift the offended gives

to the one who harmed them


were forgiveness deserved

it would have another name
