** Forgiveness **

Looking back,
so much trouble in our lives
And wonder why
this for me is ‘hives’
Why is there pain
This hate insane
cos we are alone
We hate others
in the crowd forlon?

And then, I remember
What my peers said
Look up to the lord
Look up the saviour
For one must die first
To live again

So much anger,
so much strife
Then our minds
are closed rife
Words don’t dare
to come forth
And if words do come
They’d be hate
and venom pourth

The answer to this,
may seem far away
Nay, its close to you,
I say
Just be cool
Pray the lord and repent
For,
Theres forgiveness
And its in forgiving
that one does live again.

Forgiveness is a way of life,
friendship, peace and harmony
when we forgive
you stop feeling resentful
there is no more indignation,
or anger against another
for a perceived offence,
difference or mistake,
theres no clamor for punishment
IT MEANS THE END OF VIOLENCE.
IT MEANS PEACE

AHIMSA PARAMO DHARAMA
Anger begets more anger
Forgiveness and love
Begets more forgiveness and love
Its good for both
The forgiver and the forgiven

The BIBLE - christianity says “Lord forgive them
for they know not what they do”
In KORAN – Islam, Allah is said to be the most forgiving
The BHAGWAD GEETA - Hinduism says
Equal to friend and enemy,
equal to honour and insult,
pleasure and pain,
praise and blame…that man is dear to me (Chapter12, verse18-19) .”
And in DHAMAPADA -Buddism
The law of Karma we notice
That it is not a way of taking revenge
But practicing Karuna
To avoid resentment and thus forgiveness.

And then, I remember What my peers said Look up to the lord Look up the saviour For one must die first To live again Yes, Anjali, we have to die to self, to be able to forgive - not to be too full of ourselves; die to our passions, die to our selfish cravings, and learn to be more giving. Great! ! 10 from me, mark
