FORGIVE TO FORGET



Forgive to Forget:
Peter Sokolowskyj Wednesday, July 14, 2021

To forgive is to forget, most of you are unable yet
How can thee forgive? As to forgive one must forget
In order to really live, by being able to give.
blocked out by ole favourite taking and getting,
Robbs us the right & the reasons for not selecting
Ultimate obsession blind leading the blind
Singing Amazing Grace a long-term possession.
Blindness is mindless that always finds less’
Kindness overcomes blindness that binds best
The natural order of giving without taking and getting
The secret art of living that secures proper forgetting
No shame, no blame, all is equal and all is the same
The simple solution of life’s endless repetive game
To forgive is to forget, but you are unable yet,
How can you forgive? As to forgive you must forget
In order to live by being able to give.
Give of yourself open your eyes and start to live!
