Day by day
he recites
Ho’oponopono.

I’m sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
I love you

Day by day,
he recites the mantra,
the prayer,
the pleading to be forgiven —
and to forgive.

I’m sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
I love you

While family and friends
howl at the sins
of the people inside their televisions
he seeks to cleanse
the errors inside himself,
but the more furious he claws
at that sodden ground
the deeper the sea of errors seems.

I’m sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
I love you

Day by day
he feels the crushing weight
of his own frailty;

wonders how many lifetimes
it will take
to be light enough
for clouds.

I’m sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you
I love you
