Forgiveness quote on a bronze plaque.


I've heard it said that life's unfair;
that too many people just don't care,
and while that opinion may be true,
perhaps the answer may lie within you.

No one chooses from whence he came,
the color of his skin, his parents or name.
Each of us is given, by God's own plan,
free will to choose any card in our hand.

Wealth and fame don't guarantee success,
without God in your life, you don't stand a chance.
There is only one right guaranteed to be true,
and the choice that you make well, it's all up to you.

Not a day goes by that a memory isn't made;
not a word ever spoken will entirely fade.
Love isn't love til you given away,
and hate never ends til you call it a day.

Revenge is the reason that many are lost;
they cling to their slights no matter their cost.
There are none so blind as those who won't see
that forgiveness begins with a person called, Me.
