If you try to reach inside of your heart,
you can find forgiveness, or at least the start.
And from that place where you can forgive,
is where hope, and love, also thrive and live.

And with each step that you try to take,
and with that chance that your heart might break.
Comes so much happiness, and so much strength,
which alone can carry you a fantastic length.

For hate and anger will not get you there,
and though you say that you just don’t care.
You can easily avoid the pain on which hate feeds,
the kind of hurt that no one needs.

Just make the move, take that first stride,
let go of the thing known as foolish pride.
Maybe then you can start to repair the past,
into something strong, that will mend, and last.

Have a great week end everyone!
