Either out in the sun or hiding in from the rain,

There is no doubt, at some point you will weather pain.
People make mistakes, both big and small,
Perhaps many reasons contribute to them all.
Why hold onto a grudge,
Who appointed you to be the jury and the judge.
Rather learn and move on,
To a life of laughter, love and fun.
One can’t peacefully live,
Spending your entire life, refusing to forgive.


-D.L. Carroll

Refusing to forgive put a great strain on you and you can't live peacefully cause you are not living according to God's words. He asked us to forgive our enemies and love one another. It is as it should be to do that.

Hello Carroll,
Yes mistakes are big & small indeed, but they come with a valuable lesson learned & a wrong doing comes with a foreseeable consequence.
Your Poetic Express Is a very good write to reflect on.

Wow, we write similiar, getting our points across!
Wonderfully felt and said again!
I'd rather move on, listen and learn...I've forgiven, and in my heart I'm glad I did! I had to - to keep growing!

A very true thought...

Why live without forgiving?

It truly must place a weight upon one who cannot forgive another for whatever cause or reason...

nice work.....
