God Give me the strength

God! Give me the strength
 Oh, god give me the strength to forgive
Even when I was not forgiven,
No one to humiliate or to offend
Even when I was humiliated or offended
Give me the wisdom to be always fair,
Teach me to fly and not to be scared,
Not to be indiffernt to the neighbors,
But to live and create for worlds favors.
If I doubt to ask my heart for advice
As my heart never tells me lies.
If im wrong to apologize, 
Insult and hurt not memorize. 
Seven words I'd like here to say, 
They help me to greet each day,
They help to love and live,
They help me to believe, 
They help my PAIN to relieve,
For me they are the main:
TO UNDERSTAND AND TO ACCEPT, TO THANK,TO LOVE AND TO FORGIVE, TO LEARN & TO BELIEVE!
