To Forgive Oneself

I ask this of you: Do not forgive me just yet

You see I'm not quite ready to be pardoned

Spare me time to grieve over my moral debt

For only then can one's guilt be abandoned.

You are right dear Jason. Mostly I write it so that I hear it! We need to forgive ourselves more than we need to be forgiven. It's a matter of survival.
Thank you ?

Fair enough, but don't take too long to forgive yourself, guilt is only a signpost to the path of redemption.?
