Amazing how life takes us to places

From which we never expected graces

Often surprising counter intuitive

Locations provide varietal renewing


Most of us learn feeling life’s tether

You can’t love this and that together

As we age if we’re smart

We chose to follow not “right” but heart


When honest with self

No reason to hate someone else

Usually don’t dislike who they are

It’s what they did their action ajar


Reflecting on our own dis-ease

Their action opposite of what would please

We have a choice in how we react

Hold onto anger use your tact


Though deeply hurt choose to forgive

That noble path teaches us how to live

Letting go continuing love

Mindful connected to godhead above


Are there opportunities for you to choose a greater level of compassion toward others?

Do you understand that forgiveness is more about your letting go than punishing the other?
