Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Would you rather be right
than happy?
What was so utterly terrible,
preferring to live in a lonely world
separated from the one
who truly loves you?
In this vast universe
you found the diamond
in the rough
That most precious treasure
to value and keep forever
Someone to rely on
To love and cherish
and now you risk it all
Stop chewing on the
bone of contention
Come down from that lonely
mountain of self-righteousness
where no one lives in harmony
Forgiveness will release you
from the chains of heartache
Be free to love and be loved
