Not Owed

This for that
All things owed
Must be repaid
Debt is a way
We’ve learned
To live our lives.
Everything must
Always be earned
But wait, hang on
What about forgiveness?
It lets go without
Asking for anything
At all in return
It wipes away all marks
And it is not earned
It is given
Forgiveness is
An incredible gift
That we all
Need more of
