Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a wonderful thing,

It can clear your brain and make your heart sing.

No longer a grudge, left stuck in your mind,

Forgiveness allows you peace to find.


For all the times I´ve held a grudge,

and carried it with me as I trudge

through days of torment , holding onto a lie,

When all I need do is forgive and walk by.


I needed forgiveness myself recently

grateful, I am for the man who set free

my silly mistakes that hurt him and me

and quickly forgave and gave me back ´´Me´´.,

Nice. Forgiving and dumping the stress of the anger sure is worth it.

Thank you dear.

I do love you so.

We get stuck in some ruts,

And simply can't go.

Thank you dear.

You lift my soul.

You're a healing solution,

For a heart with a hole.

Of all those

hardest to forgive

self must help self live

if someone else gave you "you"

have a care to not

hold you lower

then forgiveness gives you claim

fly friend fly.

lol nicely done and prompts me to rely.

Fear not friend for I respond to the thought

and not in critique parse of you.
