Poem...Forgiveness Born

Today I release the ties that bind. The chains melt, the bars dissolve. I choose to free myself as both prisoner and captor of my heart and mind. 

 

May this moment be the time of forgiveness born. May I rise above the ashes. Smell the fresh blue air. May my blocks and barriers be healed. Extend your mercy to all who be. So that they too know what it is to be free.

 

May the stars’ twinkle in my eyes. May love flow through my words. May this ever-present miracle come into this world. May I be a beacon of solace and peace. May I honour my purpose in the ebb and flow. I willingly pursue in my practice of letting go.

 

May the tears runnith into the river of life. May the flushing they bring make eyes anew. So, that I see clearly, walk with courage and serve with love. Hear me dear One of this prayer of mine. I am willing to have my forgiveness be born. I cut the cords of days gone by. I release the whispers raping my mind. 
 

I tend to my heart and welcome my soul to be the art of my true goal. May wonder flow in all of my choices. May I hear, trust and follow your guidance.

Lay down my weapons, I am done with fighting. I am done with wishing and dreaming and crying. I am done holding so tight that my candle no longer burns bright. I see and own the pain I have caused. This too has been my cross for so long. I am deeply sorry for my judgemental ways. I am tired and bruised yet feel at peace, while the winds blow against my tear stained face.

I humbly lay here alone, but not really. Your light fills the room. You beacon me to rise. I am here dear One, none but the wise.

For the wise may fall and at times lose faith, they cannot deny your powerful grace. 

Please hear my prayer. May this moment, this One true dear, may forgiveness be born, right now, right here.
