It isn’t very easy to forgive.
It isn’t very easy to forget.
Both both of these are necessary to live.
You have to find the truth of inner peace
and though it isn’t easy to forget,
you must if you’ve to gain that true release.
To live and love in comfort with yourself,
you have to have the courage to forget
or your pride festers into living hell.
There really isn’t any other way.
Just let the past go, take deep breaths, forget
and open-hearted face each brand new day
with genuine forgiveness, come what may.
