Some say it's the secret to life
Others tell you not
Some people just can't face the truth
Even if they're caught
Why must it be this way
Forgiveness is so hard
Even if you don't think it now
Think of those you've scarred
If anger gets you sad and glum
Forgiveness sets you free
Hatred is like burning coal in your heart
We are often too blind to see
How must one forgive you ask
It's like a rebirth of all hope
For some of us it has come to pass
That is how we cope
Everyone needs to start forgiving
To live with a peaceful heart
We all have more in common
Then we ever had apart
Author's Notes:
Don't allow your own self-forgiveness to be contingent upon somebody else's willingness to forgive you. They may get something out of holding on to anger that they aren't ready to let go of. They may be too frightened or wounded to let go of their anger. Feeling angry may be an important part of their healing process at this time. Allow others to be where they are. Respect their right to feel the way they feel. You must start with yourself.

It is hard to fogive others that have gone out of their way to hurt you. Some can release it but never forgive the person or people who have hurt them.



Another remarkable fabulous write

This is such a great wite and true too, Mr Fletch. Enjoyable read. The about part as well.

Forgiveness can be easy too i feel as long as both parties are willing to forgive each other and admit their mistakes.

Fletch, you are a wise man indeed. We must forgive ourselves, and others too, and allow people the time to heal and work through things.
