An eye for an eye,
A tooth for a tooth,
This is how so many of us are taught
What it teaches us
is to be unforgiving and violent

What if we learned new lesson.
What if we learned to radiate love
in all situations
to all people
and most importantly
to ourselves

What if we remembered that
forgiveness is a gift
to you and to me.
Forgiveness sets us both free.

Forgiveness is not forgetting,
it is just releasing us both
from the pain of hatred
and violence

So today, I begin by forgiving
and then I ask forgiveness
from others
and myself
This helps set the world free
