forgiveness reigns in the one we all claim to love.
we claim his words and we agree with his commands.
we don't always act but we say we love him the most
we say we want unity and trust like he says to want
we make bad choices and we break each other
he calls us back to his heart and binds up our wounds
and sends us out to each other with the strength 
to fix what we have wronged
and sometimes we follow
but most of the times we run
far, far away from that call
the call to unity and forgiveness
we hold onto bitterness
and it cuts us to the bone
we become skeletons to one another
not so much brothers and sisters 
but offenses and pains
in our selfishness we break the one we all love
his one sacrifice covered it all 
so let's take that and run back to each other
with forgiveness
and maybe we can be brothers and sisters 
once again.

Be kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God, for Christ's sake has forgiven you.
Ephesians 4:32
