Forgiveness

Written by: Gale Greenwood

Is it not true that fear exists
though our hearts and minds do resist?
When temptations touch of a sweet kiss rendered
can receive nothing but sorrow when too much is surrendered.
Yet, strength lives in believing in ourselves
and fear can save us from another’s hell.
Walking away never hurts for long
but staying can change our most precious song.
So lets sing our songs out loud from up high
where faiths reflection is the blueness of the sky.
Don’t let fear hold us in chains.
Let it guide us and deliver us from pain.
Surrender to compassion for ourselves for all.
It brings forgiveness which is true nourishment in the fall.
For freedom doesn’t reside in hearts filled with judgement,
and Jesus, his life, wasn’t that his true message?
