Learning to Forgive

Why is it easy to be kind to others?
Yet we cannot forgive ourselves
We carry resentments of past actions
Like shields and coat of arms

We offer gentleness to friends
But to ourselves we wish harm
Carrying guilt like invisible bags
When does the self hatred end

How can we extend our kindness to strangers?
When we offer cruelty to our own souls
Beating us down for mistakes made long ago
Trying so hard to be perfect when life is out of our control

It is time now to let the anger go
Loved ones forgave and moved on
Learn lessons of love from their actions
You shall see
Your mistakes are forgiven all this time

Sit a moment and reflect now
Learning to forgive yourself is key
The only true way to be happy and free
Find the strength to let go somehow

Repeat after me “May I Forgive Myself”
Say it with truth and intent
Break free from the chains of guilt now
You can do it- you have the power and know how!!

The Unwelcome Guest

Crept into our lives one fateful day – so sneakily
Disrupting the order and way things were suppose to be
Selflessly trying to carry the burden alone
Not wanting the turbulence to shake up your family
Putting up a brave front and face every day
Knowing that life will no longer be the same
Wanting to find the right moment to tell somehow
Planning carefully how to break this heavy news
A call to make in order to inform your family
Such a shock – how can this be our present reality
Such a dreadful and dark word to use and deal with now
Trying to process all the emotions but unsure how
So unfair it has happened to you – how can this be
It won’t win this war – you will be the winner here
Logically I know you will be alright for sure
However the thought creates an emotional uproar
No longer do you have to walk this road alone
Your family and friends will help you along
