The f word

When feeling wronged, hurt and in pain, keep faith
In the universal threefold rule, what’s
Given out, good or bad comes back to you
Thrice as strong, free yourself from the gnawing
Pangs of hatred and thoughts of vengeance hard,
Let those without sin cast the first stone, it’s
Time to forgive yourself, change foes to friends
Be the first to offer an olive branch
That’s bearing fruits of forgiveness,
Give yourself permission to move forward,
Feel anguish lift from shoulders heavy, dark
Clouds clear, inner shadows recede, open
Your heart, welcome in warmth of compassion,
Now drink from the fountain of forgiveness.

  1. Thanks for these fruits of forgiveness. I still have a lot of work to do, because when I first clicked on your post, I was expecting to see a different word. Thank you for changing my perspective. {{{hugs]}} Kozo

    • Thank you, Kozo, it’s a pity that there are so many fantastic words beginning with f that are overshadowed by the over publicised one. I wondered how I was going to write about forgiveness, however a few seconds into my cardio exercise paid off, as if a guardian angel was whispering in my ear. {{{hugs}}} Robert
