Treasure Island

Forgive Them All


Life is a ladder
Climb with care

Life is a jungle
But still find time to love and trust

Forgive
Those who'should have loved you but didn't

Forgive
Those who'promised to protect you but didn't

Forgive
Those who'betray' your affections

Forgive
Those who'were never there for you

Forgive
Those who'scorn'and disrespected your dignity

Forgive
Those who'said I love you
But dispair'you

Forgive
Those who'never like' you, love'you
And want'you around

Forgive
Those who'always thought you
Are over ambitious and would amount to nothing

Forgive
Those who'purloin'your happiness
Your joys and your pride

Forgive
Those who'never gave you flowers

Forgive
Those who'never remember'
Your birth day

Forgive, forgive Oh forgive them all...

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;
