Forgiveness-Poem

Updated on February 2, 2011

Forgiveness- A poem

First time in years am feeling

So relaxed and relieved.

I am liberated from your shackles,

Your memories have finally lost their feel.


The tears have dried,

The pain has faded away.

Now, it feels so good to be whole again;

It feels so right to enjoy the rain.


By letting go of pain,anger,vengeance

And feelings of despair-I have learnt to breathe in fresh air.

By letting go of hatred, jealousy & resentment

I have found my strength;I've found a way for my heart to mend.


At first it was so hard to move on

but now it feels like a new life has been waiting for me.

At first it felt impossible to let go,

But now it feels like a new kind of warmth is spreading over me.


It was wrong to hurt cheat & lie to me.

But I guess it wasn't done intentionally.

It was wrong to leave

When You sweared You would never leave me

But, I am sure you would've stayed if it was written in my destiny.


There are no more feelings of hatred,

Enemity or regrets left anymore

'I FORGIVE YOU' for having walked out on me,

For having walked out of that door.

      Hi dear

      this was beautifully done i enjoyed it and can share your sentiments to. I once felt like you but i don't feel that way anymore. I have forgive but you know forgetting seems harder to do but is only recently i realize that i no longer even think of that person is like they never existed.

      I thank GOD for his love and for the storm he has brought me through. It was and is for my GOOD.

      Nice flow. Forgiveness is healing. To forgive is as important for your growth as to be forgiven.

      It is not always an easy act to forgive

      but to forgive is to survive and to live.

      Must be both forgivers and forgetters

      because future life depends on latters.

      @Acaetnna- It is absolutely necessary to forgive, if we want to forget it and put the past and the pain behind us.. As U said, its never easy but letting go of the pain becomes more difficult when we hold the resentment in our hearts instead of just making it better by forgiving.. I would rather Forgive and make it easier to forget than hold the grudge and make myself miserable..!

      Thank u so much for ur valuable comment :)

      God bless ya!
