Try Forgiveness

Vengeance is so overated; hate kills the hater.

And justifies the action of the hated.

Why lower yourelf to that point

Instead, with forgiveness them annoint.

If you don’t respond in kind,

It will free your troubled mind.

Just saying "I forgive them" as a start.

It will ease the pain in your own heart.

One day soon the pain will be gone,

And you my dear friend can finally move on.

Words of Wisdom, Bobbi. Forgiveness is the first step toward Peace.

"By understanding the dark within ourselves,

we can embrace the light that exists in others."

Love & Light,

an inspired being holds no ill upon another ... "to err is human, to forgive is divine" ...

Beautifully written wisdom message Bobbi! With God all things are possible.Those who say it's so hard to forgive try to do it by themselves. It doesn't work well that way, and it is hard. Sharing it with the Lord is a lot easier.

Profound message, Bobbi. With God's grace one can forgive, but I think its harder to forget.

God bless,

Are you speaking to me? Thanks for you comments to my last poem. I have forgiven but not forgotten the pain never goes away. It just gets a little easier to live with as time goes by. It's hard to find what was taken at such a young age. I continue the search, especialy for my own kids sake.

Well put. I'll have to remember that when it's time to make out my income tax forms.

Great message:

To forgive is to forget, so one can move on in life.

Sound advice!

Though this is really an inspirational write there are some things I will never forgive people for, the rapes of innocent children for example, could you really forgive someone if they raped a three or four year old child of yours...I could not and though it may be wrong in a case like that I would only settle for revenge.

So hard, the actual 'release' of pain...

Thank you, Bobbi, there is soul-soothing in your words.
