Three Divine Words



If words can kill
If words can heal
If the pen is mightier still
Then they must be as real

If men are caged
By men enraged
If grudges old as time
Can spin a web without rhyme
or reason and ensnare
themselves in their lair..

And if this is the cruel face
Of a distorted human race
Then there must be a way free
A divine key

If you can find it within you
To find God within you
To undo this slimy web
To put down this gun to your head
And say..
Three short words..
That open the cage
set free the birds..
That turn the page..

Three words that allow
Allow you to
Breathe...
Breathe..

That flood you with the kind of peace
Peace
Only God can bestow..

then
just say them
and mean them..

and

fly



i forgive you

I can forgive most anything, but not someone who hurts and harms my child.

your writing is out of this world.

I mentioned this anecdote already, once a famous speaker asked a big crowd what are the 3 most important words in a marriage. most of the people answered I LOVE YOU
he said, wrong! the 3 words are "I am sorry!"

and u are right "I forgive you" matches that too

Oh,if we could learn the value of true forgiveness...
So many times, we say to someone "forget it, it's cool," when it isn't. We're not just harming them, we're harming ourselves...

yah, that's something i gotta work on... forgiving others...
holding onto grudges is so painful, but actually fogiving is often even harder...
cuz, as someone mentioned previously, you first have to forgive youself....
