Forgiveness

Updated on February 12, 2013

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´´.,

    Forgiveness is such a gift to used often. Once you release it magically the chains and weights of life have been lifted. Not always the easiest to do or understand but with poems like yours help us understand. Congratulations on seven years. Time has a way of slipping away. I hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving.

    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.

    Dear Dim ~ You have contributed a much needed reminder to us all with your beautiful poem on Forgiveness. We sometimes forget to forgive ourselves as well as others.

    You are so precious. I'm voting up and across except for funny and sharing this as well. Hugs, dearest friend.
