cross jesus summit cross

I write a lot of stuff that may seem to be in a hostile way.

See everything is not all bright and gay.

There is power though in things we can choose

Like loving another despite the fact they do no good.

Or teaching someone something to try to make their day better

Perhaps just letting someone pass in line, if you have the time.

All these things go farther than you and me

They take on a purpose and they start acting like a stream

That stream will flow through to another, then another one

I know I have done it, and I am not done.

Forgiveness is necessary as well,

Probably one of the most important to tell.

If you can’t get past all the animosity and pain

How do you expect to float to a higher plain?

It is true what they say about “coming back to you”

I have seen it for real, it is true.

So let’s learn to forgive, even when they sure as heck do not deserve it.

Let us remember they are still human, you can see that.

We can change their life as well as ours

If we forgive them, we release that burden, the one that towers

We can finally let things go

We can make new what we had destroyed by holding on without forgiving

This life is for those that give while they’re living.





We have to teach our generations to forgive and give, or else we are destroying ourselves from the inside out.


Thank you for reading 🙂

  1. Great poem. I too believe that any act of kindness with sincere intention will make a difference in this nonsensical world. True forgiveness IS liberating, We must be careful not to fool ourselves. We can not erase the memory but the memory will not hurt us. Thanks for sharing.
