Power Of Forgiveness

Sometimes, I ask myself,

"what is the point".

Why do I do it?

They do not deserve,

to be forgiven.

So why do I do it?

Then I remember,

Christ hanging on a cross,

looking at the crowd.

He did not say or cry, 'let me off'.

Rather he said aloud,

"forgive them for,

they know not what they do".

I forgive because it is better,

to forgive then,

to die with a grudge.

Forgivness is powerful.

I have seen it change lives,

while hatred consumes,

and your life it deprives.

So perhaps,

we do not deserve forgivness.

There will be those,

who will not appreciate,

your goodness.

Still, when you are down,

remember how Christ died,

and your spirit will over-run,

with fullness.
