Forgive


Forgive forgive it is what is best
Having hate in your heart
Is not worth the stress
So let go of the mess
When are we going to learn
That we are only human
And we are all going
To make mistakes
Some may be small
And some great
Still we can all somehow do
What it takes
To not allow hate
To be fate
Whether we had a fight
We have to try with all
Of our might
To get unity into our sight
It is not about who
Was wrong or right
Anger only hurts
The one who is angry
So lets free ourselves
From this insanity
We have to release
The bad energy
And be at peace
Understanding being unhappy
Is not helping
Anybody
Besides what good is it
Going to do
Especially when nine times out of ten
The one you are offended by
Doesn't even know it
So no matter what the situation is
Forgive Forgive
With the hate and anger chill
If you can not handle it
Admit it
And turn it over to God it's a
Guarantee that He
Can fix it

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
