Learning How To Forgive - Poem by Patricia Kelley

The poison of un-forgiveness, that travels quickly through veins.
Too, only Increase life's strains.
The poison that causes jitters throughout the night,
and breaks the will to fight.
You only feel up tight.
When caught in the path of un-forgiveness.
You lose your laugh and wittiness.
You weren't taught forgiveness.
When your heart is broken,
You feel unspoken.
The only feeling you feel is brokenness.
Your heart hardens.
You feel no pardons.
Life has hurt you.
No one understands, because they haven't walked in your shoe.
If only they knew,
How deep you hurt inside.
There might be someone, in which you could confide,
That would run to your side.
But, you hold the bitterness
In making you sicker each day,
Losing a week's pay,
Until, you finally let it go,
And, you realize it's only hurting you,
The one, or ones' that hurt you; are still going on with their lives,
Why shouldn't you?
Then, you finally learn to forgive, and find the love and laughter back in your own life, and wonder why, you ever chose un-forgiveness.
