Forgiveness

Its never easy
Hatred is easy,Bitterness is easy
But forgiveness that a hard one
sometimes people say things they dont mean
they do things they cant take back,
we all do things we cant take back
so in the lingering moment
we feed our selves to stop the pain
we are all afraid o something
i was afraid,i was dying
butin the face of great dispare ,what i’ve dne
is who i am
but what i’ve done is not who i will be
unburden yourself from the mistakes of your past
and when you do,your heart grow stronger
i must know.mine was supposed to go out
along time ago
but that doesn,t mean that what you’ve done is forgotten
whatn you’ve done is still out there
it still remembers
so rember that when you practise whatever evils in your heart
when you chaet or lie or hate or cover up
whatever it is that you do,you have done or your about to do
theres no forgiveness
theres just what comes next,
theres just what we do and how we pay for it
so dont do it,just stop.before its too late
