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´´.,

      Nice. Forgiving and dumping the stress of the anger sure is worth it.

      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.

      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.
