Unconditional Love & Unforgivable Sins by Chestlyn Draghoender

Chestlyn Draghoender | Jun 4th, 2019 | poetry | No Comments

Poem

DO NOT
speak of sacrifice
and commitment,
Without knowing what
they mean

Carry on
as though we had no reason
to leave. Believe
when you said we would fail

A thousand lives
couldn’t make up for
those unforgivable sins

DO NOT
speak of unconditional love
Without learning how to give
A penny
A song
A poem
A kiss
To a loved one

You missed
all those opportunities
when we left.
