"Forgiveness" by me. Acrylic paint and glitter nail polish on heavy paper.

Days of sleep

Many tears

To love me

I must forgive you

Doubts

Mistrust

Hatred

Hurt me more

than you

Depression

will not win

You are forgiven

I am a bit wiser

Love takes a hit

but

survives.

      "Love takes a hit but survives" We all have been "survivors" at one time or more in our lives. Despite the scars we eventually heal after learning to forgive. Love this poem.

      Love is the one feeling in this world... if personified and spoken off... the man who can take all the bullets and bombs on himself and still live to tell the tale and wait for another!

      Beautiful write!
