Forgiveness Is Crucial

Updated on April 13, 2011

We all make mistakes

the truth be told

Say words that we shouldn't

our tongues can't hold


Try to hurt each other

because we hurt too

The pain of a wrong

that has been done to you


You want to say sorry

don't know where to begin

So hard to go backwards

when you've gone for the win


Don't hold back much longer

just say what you should

Say, "Listen, I'm sorry"

"I'd take it back if I could"


Look directly in eyes

and mean what you say

Forgiveness is crucial

to begin a new day

      Forgiveness is important ~ without it there is just bitterness. Glad it got you thinking, RTalloni :)

      This really is very beautiful.

      Having a spirit of forgiveness--a willingness to forgive--is so important.

      You've got me thinking about important issues related to forgiveness. Thanks.
