Forgiveness is a hard
thing to do
For sometimes it is
hard to forgive you

No matter what it
is to forgive
It can stop you
living your life to live

Being unforgiving can
keep you in the past
Trapped by stubbornness
Shadows cast

For how can you move
on if you don’t forgive
It destroys all your
humanity and basic belief

But there is a side to
forgiveness that isn’t good
Taken advantage of by
those that never should

Forgiving them time and
Can be draining and
hard to defend

Then there’s forgiveness
of bigger things
Like war and murder
and the hate it brings

But to forgive is the
only way forward
For all concerned
if actually heard
