FORGIVING YOU

With my forgiveness
I hope you purge your heart off negativity
With my forgiveness
I hope you find your soul lost in the bitterness of guilt
With my forgiveness
I hope you find your way to your true desires
In the vehicle of a clean heart
With my forgiveness
I hope you see the real road to your success
And discard the thorns of coveteousness
To board the plane of determination to your rightful destination

II
But forgiveness starts from within
It is that thing you can’t feel from others
…if you open not yourself to it
So find that rope of self blame
…to untie you
Find that place of self cursing
…to bless you
Find that space of regrets
…to sweep sorries and their worries in order to find your clean slate
It matters what you think of you
It matters what you say about you
It matters what you feel about you
It matters how you handle your mistakes
So forgive you
In order to let the rays of others’ forgiveness in
Fallibility is a human trait even saints aren’t immuned to
There is only so much you can do to be perfect
But just like falling and rising
You can excuse your mistakes
And recognize their inevitability
In order to live life as smooth as you can
In this time’s manageable mortality

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
