There are many alive among
us who live embracing certain
unhappiness each day

They are so full of such
hatred for another who may
have hurt them in some way

They find they can never
release the pain inflicted
deep within their lives

They hold onto that hurt each
day as they live never letting
hatreds flame To die

They want them to suffer much
each moment of their daily
lives in many ways

Only finding in the end the only
ones who suffer are those whose
hearts became hatred’s lasting

Many say by their words they love
God above all, yet they still allow
the hurt in their lives to stay

When there is One who paid the
ultimate price casting away all
of hatreds most painful chains

Many still are turning away from
the living One who died setting
all of their lives free one time

Not ever realizing as hatred
lives within their consciences
and hearts its power will never
let them be

You can never really be forgiven
by the One who never a day in His
life was found to sin

Unless you open up your hearts,
spirits, and souls allowing His
forgiving grace to truly enter in

When He died upon that old wooden
Cross, one time for the many sins
committed by all who live

What was committed yesterday,
today, and tomorrow, by His
selfless sacrifice, and amazing
grace He did forgive

It was the greatest gift, the
purest genuine act of love,
of forgiveness done in this
world by anyone

With that one-act of love He
sought to teach by His singular
sacrifice on the cross how true
healing really begun

His prayer while dying was Father,
please, forgive them for they know
not what they do this day

While He chose not to condemn us
for the many sins and the hatred
that to this day is constantly on

Reminding what He taught us in His
spoken word at the Sermon on the
mount he left to us a genuine

To finding peace and freedom in
our lives and how to really make
that peace in our lives to stay

Forgiveness is the one special
key which can really chase hatreds
ugly spirit away

Just as He paid the price for a
debt to God which we humans in our
lives alone could never repay.

We must forgive the sins committed
against us by others and the sins we
committed against others no matter
how small or large…then alone in
prayer before Christ in a quiet place
Forgive ourselves for our own sins.
He in one act upon the cross, forgave
us all one time instantly…believing
in our Lord God can we not also forgive
doing the same and receive the blessing
of peace blossoming in our lives as it
is nurtured by His amazing grace and love.
Why do we hold onto past baggage when in
Christ we are born anew, forgiven and set
