Forgive yourself!

Word prompt: Freedom


there are many ways

you can define

one eight letter word.

I suppose you can say

I exercised mine

by freely giving

someone else control.

Of my own accord

I let another person

have power over me

when they didn’t deserve it.

But I can’t beat myself

over my past mistakes

and decisions I made

when I was afraid.

Two years have gone by

And my life is my own

I have forgiven myself

I’m once again whole.

  1. so very true…Freedom means something different for all of us…and, forgiveness is a key that opens a lifetime of doors – I wish more people could see this!
