You can hold a grudge
for the rest of your life,
but that won't heal the hurt.


It only creates holes
deep in your soul
that fester and grow.


When pain can break us,
forgiveness can make
a heart whole again.


It is the most freeing feeling-
not giving into your emotions
and letting go of resentment.
