Do I have permission, I need to move on

Can I stop and smell a rose or hold a child in my arms

To laugh out loud putting an end to strife

Do I have permission to go on with my life?


I've done nothing wrong but still I feel guilt

Now I can't see over the walls that I've built

I need to stand in the sun, it's warmth on my face

Do I have permission to accept God's healing grace?


I've asked before but I'm not yet free

I take a step and know it's not easy

I may be forgiven but that's not what I need

Do I have permission to let the pain recede?


Myself judge and jury, I passed judgment

And I've dealt myself the punishment

Now I must ask myself for a reprieve

Do I have permission to no longer grieve?

The grace given has scattered the blame as far as the east is from the west-blessed assurance-. Everlasting life

I wondered how long it would take you to pen these words? They have been on your heart for a very, very long time. Grief and grieving will always be a part of you, it's your call on the amount of effort you choose to invest. I think, we we begin to ask for permission to no longer grieve, that we are ready to accept the next chapter in our life - l i v i n g. And, you do life so well. I know this first-hand.

I love you. God bless you ------- Kathy

When we judge ourselves, sadly we are the sternest court we often face, God forgives, familys forgive, friends forgive yet we still refuse to let it go. Emotional imprisonment is a terrible sentence and a dark place to reside...I wish I had the power to pay your parole but I know it is still your call. Great write

Nice bit of philosophizing to yourself . . . You construct you words, sentences AND premise superbly. . .

Permission...GRANTED, now, go away and start smiling, because the children looking up to you should have a happy teacher.

Reviewed by Paul Berube 1/23/2008
You most certainly do my friend. The past is gone and there is nothing you can do to change that. It's time to move on; just do it. Well done RL.
