Forgiveness

7 Comments

 

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.
