A Poem by Tricia O'Brien

Forgiveness is by far the most difficult challenge one experiences

To forgive wholeheartedly is to honestly accept what’s been done or left undone

To genuinely forgive you must truly understand what’s happened

For this to come to fruition, the truth needs to be spoken, known and accounted for

With this comes weight and that at times can be overwhelming

The flipside to all storms is a rainbow of some kind

This symbolic notion is actually a gift

To forgive others is only possible when you’re able to forgive yourself

This is the only way

I believe forgiveness is freedom

Freedom from what needed to be forgiven in the first place

You are right. We must forgive ourselves before we forgive another. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
