      Poetry Submission: On Forgiveness – Erev Rosh Hashanah


      On Forgiveness – Erev Rosh Hashanah
      by Sarah Feld
      After struggling to be conceived,
      the spirit of forgiveness
      is passionately born
      in the appointed season
      In Elul
      it becomes a relentless force
      if we treasure
      our soul’s redemption
      HaShem, in this world
      of optical delusions
      help us
      to let go
      of our ego, pride
      and self- righteous anger
      Please HaShem,
      guide us to accept others
      Let Your Loving Light
      permeate our consciousness
      inspiring us
      to love – and forgive
      And please, G-d protect us
      in Your judgment
      in the coming
      awe-inspiring, Holy days
