It is not about Forgetting, but Forgiving
Poetry and Music by Andrew Pell

We do things that we don’t forget.

We often fret.

We punish ourselves for memories past.

The feelings seem to forever last.

It is important not to forget.

But forgiveness is a sure bet.

The secret is not to forget, but forgive.

It is through this process we learn to live.

Forgive ourselves as others forgive us.

Why create anxiety or fuss.

Do not be hard on yourself.

Put past pain or anger on the shelf.

Christ has blotted out all transgressions.

Perform acts of charity and contrition.

It is not about forgetting, but forgiving.

Throw negativity in the recycling bin.
