I forgive you and now my soul can fly

Updated on January 23, 2017

Because I forgive you

I no longer stay awake crying all night long

All my nightmares are now, beautiful dreams

I am not afraid to love people anymore

My past doesn't control my future

I give all of myself now and not just half

Depression will no longer be a part of my life

Just a long, lost dark memory from my past

I chase after all my dreams

Even the outlandish ones

Fear cannot hold me back

I do not blame myself now, for what you did


Because I forgive you

I know it was your fault, not mine

I finally stopped hating you

Because I started loving me

I forgive you for hurting me

Now my soul is free to fly

      This is beautiful. Time does heal hurt, if you are willing to forgive and have a positive attitude in going forward. Love the message here! The musical piece is beautiful. Voted up and shared.
