At times one has to let bygones be bygone
When endless thoughts of pain
Become wrapped up and done
When inner peace has to settle in once again.
It is when the heart aims to be pure
Forcefully letting go of the bitter past
Amending the present to move towards the future
Promising eternal peace that lays so vast.
Although memories of pain can never perish
It up to man to avoid any feelings of hate
But look towards that harmony that one so cherish
And which may determine one’s fate.
Soon one learns that keeping a grudge may confine
One’s inner peace, but forgiveness is divine.
