|This is a poem well thought out. beautifully written. Someone once told me it's not my job to forgive someone, your not God. Which is an interesting thought if you put in terms of yourself. Maybe you just have to be kind to yourself and you are forgiven. Which raises many more questions. What i'm trying to say is I like this.|

|There's so much truth in your words,Jerry...it took me 34 years to truly learn to love myself and forgive myself for things I regreted about my past....now the world is my oyster! When you finally love yourself, you're ready to love and be loved......

|This is superb...The realisation that we matter too; that we can accept good stuff about ourselves, and most importantly...self forgiveness...then, and only then can we embark on the beginning of a beautiful love affair with ourselves, which then enables us to truly love another again...

|I like that Odin saw the realization of 'feminine' side. That is a remarkably astute take. I am reading the conclusive 'her' as the elucidative affect of a new partner presence that is found to be of such great substance, that you pulled around into applying the newness to yourself. It is good either way. Beautiful relationships are those that contain people around whom we feel best about ourselves. And your description of yourself as the stranger no longer strange fits into that formula. Especially colorful to me is : "...uglies done/ and misdemeanors thought of". Yesterday's and today's posts are marvelous writes for you, Jerry! ~~ Diana|

|New discoveries and new introspections...I'm glad you have come to this point. Often, God forgives us because we have asked and repented, but the guilt hangs over our heads, eating away at our beings, until we too can forgive ourselves.
Not sure if this is appropriate to your particular state of mind, but I love this verse: "He that cometh to me, I will in no way cast out."
(the essence of God's heart)

|Jerry, this brought tears to my eyes. You really have come a long way, self forgiveness is the first step toward healing one's heart, soul, and body. Yes I love this poem, it speaks so well of all the hard work you have done to be able to give unselfishly to another. Bravo!!
Peace, love and light,

|What a complex journey to self discovery! We seldom recognise who we really are and, because of that, our judgement is often greatly impaired. Your words are inspiring and encouraging.|

|Until the last stanza, I felt I was partaking of a singular focus. For me (as I have little faith in object love, only love unto itself) I chose to interpret your last two lines as recognizing the female within you. I've come to realize few accept such perception, but also have found the most complete people in my experience have been those that understood the opposite gender side of themselves existed and was allowed as a primary force in living a fulfilling life.|
