Forgive Thine Self

Step Four of AA - "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."

Forgive Thine Self

conniving, manipulating, deceiving
playing games to stay ahead
to keep a secret buried
which was already known

as things begin to change
wonder… can forgiveness be achieved
not from others… but from one self
more then a dream… it’s a destiny

no way around it
be kind… forgive yourself
or life… forever…
will be showered with guilt

it’s a simple choice…
yet so difficult to achieve
we can forgive others
others can forgive us

so why must the battle go on
it’s a war that must be won
as a child of God… love yourself
it’s OK… to forgive… yourself

Awesome! Great outlook even better insight on one self, being your greatest enemy is half of the battle, forgetting is winning the war.

Powerful counsel, Dave; you are right, guilt is pointless. Ask forgiveness of others you have harmed, forgive yourself, and move on. Thank you for sharing. Blessings to you,
