Looking back upon the years
Passed by so quickly
I wonder where lost time goes
Does it float around in universe?
For so much is left unaccomplished
Dreams frozen and lost due to fear
Every goal we do not attempt
Holds us back from our true self
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!!
