It’s About Forgiveness

I’ve been thinking a lot today of events in my life and how they have shaped and molded my life. We all have our share of good and let’s say, difficult times. I’ve learned that true happiness can only be appreciated when you’ve experienced maddening sadness, companionship is sweeter when you’ve tasted loneliness. In the past decade, I found love when I wasn’t looking for it, lost love without seeing it coming and my mom was taken to Heaven. Through all this I found myself…I’m learning to love myself as I love others. A lot of the time I feel very much like a lost little girl wanting her mom to find her, grab her and hold her tight. I know that’s not going to happen! I guess I want to be someone to somebody, but first I need to be someone to myself. I know that God has a plan for me…

It’s About Forgiveness

I have no right to be angry
But I am…

Life comes with no guarantees
It can consume us, if we allow it..

Self loathing and pity we give freely
Responsibility we hide in corners.

Out of sight, out of mind
Hoping it will be lost forever

Oh but it returns full of vigor
At the height of our pride

Making us humble and weak
Truth sometimes frees us

Truth often hurts before freeing us
No more burden to bare alone

Forgiveness, sweet as a spring rain
Refreshing and allows growth within

I want to dance in the rain
I want forgiveness
It must start with me…
