    It takes a strong willpower to forgive those who hurt us the most. I agree with Adrienne Barnathan your work goes so deep (Report)Reply

    This is a beautiful Haiku Ghada...says so much and is worth cherishing....with this kind of sentiment...hope travels...first, from within our own hearts (to forgive ourselves) , then outward (to forgive our partners and family) ... then, out into the world...where forgiveness needs to be applied~ Thank you for this! ! !

    I'll give you a '10' for the sentiment. I am in a mood for some positivity around this site and you certainly are doing your bit for that. Simple equation, but I like the way you put it...you could have just said something bland about love but you chose to incorporate 'deep hurt' and forgiveness as part of love...and this can be read as a series of events...line one- an argument and the reason why it hurt is inherent in the line 'deep love'...line 2- someone contemplating their actions and not necessarily believing they were wrong but...line 3- offering reconciliation anyway...'love' is more important than who was right...
