Do you readily forgive a friend for being late;
Your partner for forgetting that special date;
Your daughter for being overweight;
Or that elderly aunt who is too sedate?

Can you forgive mail delivered in a soggy state;
The squeaky hinge on a neighbour’s gate;
A partner running off with your best mate;
or a steep increase in the mortgage rate?

Will you forgive those that others love to hate;
The car accident that sealed your fate;
Yourself for being irate;
or the attention given the lovely Kate?

Forgiveness starts with ones self,
best accruement for our inner wealth.
Forgiveness of others ensures our health
as resentment only damages.

Forgiving others who have wronged us
Lightens our load, plus
Anger and grudges make us ugly inside!
So get it out or confide?

These are triggers for illness.
Cancers, headaches and addictions
Dealing with it brings inner stillness,
connects with our kindness.

Ask forgiveness from those you’ve wronged
Brings harmony and peace,
Hostilities cease.
It truly does empower!

So do it right NOW!
