Forgiveness quote, with pretty pink flowers.

Forgiveness Lesson

Holding a grudge harms no one
Except he who continues the feud,
Though the other party in question
May have been thoughtless or even just rude.
The hours spent hating another
Are a terrible waste of time,
Bitterness destroys your connections
To others, with no reason or rhyme.
All religions teach their followers
To be peaceful and not purvey hate,
So set aside your negative thoughts,
Learn to love before it's too late.
Life is short and passes too quickly
To waste it on hatred and contempt
For another's supposed shortcomings,
At least try to make the attempt
To accept what you view as flaws
And realize God made us all;
However imperfect in your eyes,
Judging others is only God's call.
