Forgiving someone is sometimes a hard thing to do,
Even though we know God told us to.
It’s hard to get rid of the anger and feeling sick,
Especially if you’ve already tried
For a long time these things to kick.
You can hardly wait for these feelings to pass,
So you can start feeling good again at last.
You feel trapped like in the twilight zone,
You’re hearing many different things,
Even though you’re alone.
You’re always telling others to forget and forgive,
But by your own preaching and advice y0u cannot live.
How can you live with yourself as this goes on?
You have to practice what you preach,
If you want others to follow along.
So even if you can’t forget you need to forgive,
And one thing is for certain, a happier life you’ll live.
