Behind every dark cloud there's a RAINBOW "FORGIVENESS"

Updated on May 29, 2012

Sometimes I remember how you did

us wrong. Sending us to places we

should not making us do chores that

we could not. Life was hard for all

of us.

But whose choice was it? Not mines

nor theirs . Cursed words were hurled

at us , licks was shed like Pease and

sometimes your sight we dreaded.

We were terrified by your voice,

and covered our heads with our

hands, trying to brace from sudden

unexpected blows.

At times we got licks with anything

that was in your sight. Slumping to

the floor only to be raised up for

some more. Sometimes we lined

up for licks this was no kicks. Our

faced sulked and sad why did you

beat us so bad. You were so raging


There were times we were hoping to see

you and you did not showed up. Hungry

stomachs just curled up waiting your

return. Where did you go? and why

did you have to leave us all the time so?

I guess it took you awhile to heal from

whatever was hurting you on the inside.

I knew something must have been wrong

for you to have acted that way. I forgive

you and I won’t hold anything against you.

Some things were meant to be the way

they were ,It was all for a reason now I

see it all in its due season.

      Ladyfiffler - I have to tell you what a beautiful soul you must be. It takes a special human being to forgive someone who has inflicted mental, physical or psychological harm on us. It also is remarkable to find the love after forgiving them. You are strong in your faith and I admire that so. Stay true to who you are. With this positive attitude, great things can happen for you.

      Many blessings

      Your title drew me in....I have an experience with a rainbow after a rain shower that came to me as the answer to a specific prayer....I will write it one day and your hub is encouraging me because the words of your poem serves as a great metaphor for many, many pains and unjust acts and behaviors.

      Want to thank you for the fanmail....I do have a great deal of faith in God and judging by what I've do you.

      Voted up, awesome.
