How to forgive the wrongs that were done to me,
Oh to understand the lessons that they be.
Wanting to know the gifts that come with the tears.
So that I may grow stronger thru the coming years.
To grow to be the person I was meant to be,
To appreciate the beauty that surrounds me.
Where does forgiveness start, how can I begin
To replace the hate with love, let the light come in?
Is it simply just the words I forgive you?
Then just say them everyday, until I am new.
Free of the anger, able to allow in,
All the love that’s meant for me, it’s time that I begin.
