A Prayer of Forgiveness

We forgive, 
Not because another requires it,
But because our souls demand it.
Forgiveness is like a tonic,
Soothing away the pain of a wrong done.
We forgive to heal,
We forgive to repair,
We forgive to live again.
Where once we were trapped,
We become freed.
Where once we were held back,
We move forward even stronger.
We forgive to heal ourselves,
We forgive to let go,
We forgive, 
Because forgiveness given
Is forgiveness received,
And we deserve forgiveness.
We forgive them, 
We pardon them, 
We let go of the pain.
