Simply Forgiving - Poem by Michael Peterson

The sky is gray and cloudy
The mood very sober
Tears flowing, hearts broken
Years of hardship and anger
Hatefulness and silence
The love and family so tarnish
No sun and smiles anymore
Just fights and mistrust and lies
Dying one by one
The wall has to be broken
There is love and happiness deep inside
Don't let regrets take life and family
Take the first step to rekindle the love for family
Don't worry about pride and who was right
Life is too short to be alone
Remember the good times
Mend the bad times
In our hearts, we love all
In our minds, we create hate
Warm the soul and break the barrier
A hug and a simple I Love You
Will open the door to recovery and harmony
Death is so close to us, live life
We can leave this world in a given moment
All we want is respect and love for the family
And for ourselves, life and family is so grand
