Thank You Thursday: Forgiveness

Be thankful this day for forgiveness.

Forgiveness stems from love. You can be apologetic; by saying you're sorry, without feeling love. To forgive takes courage, because it is a deeper emotion since it's tied to love. To forgive someone when they not know what they do, takes a great deal of love and openness. When forgiveness has taken place, your heart becomes more open and the heart can heal with time. You then become empathic to the one you have forgiven. Though the transgressor may not know what has happened and an explanation is needed, this is a greater opportunity to grow in spirit. With this growth comes enlightenment and awareness of the light living in you. Though for some to show love is a sign of weakness, but forgiveness is the first step to showing strength.

Once we have learned to look at ourselves and forgive ourselves for the transgressions we've committed, only then can we forgive others in the same manner. This puts us closer in being in touch with who we are and how we want to be treated. Being accountable for who we are, is important, know that we can't place all of the blame solely on one person. Regardless who is at fault, we are one. Once that is realized, all will fall into place.

Be thankful this day and everyday for recognizing your own strength and taking the first step to being who you really are.


Living in a society where many lack such an emotion yet contained in so few though back the bone to stand and voice to state the obvious in that we live

The projection of feelings sent in a subjective state to a submissive being infused with the surrounding conditions

For better or worse what’s hurts the most keeping in to defend self

letting it out scream and shout to world communication some sort of declaration a creation of work

Masculinity emasculated by society’s definition of homosexuality

Butch fem queen thug trade parade on the DL a spell over femininity aware of the charter comfortable with peace found in personal sexuality

Standing erect to protect what’s mine the silhouette eject the negative vibe from the resting place my soul where sorrow pain and disappointment pointed me in the wrong direction double back now on my life’s track

Don’t sympathize with this don’t synthesize emotions untrue to the nature of you a flow to and from experiences taken for granted managed to keep it real appeal to the senses

Believe in what’s not there tear away the flesh what is left the support system lent for some time a temporary place where many souls reside

What brings on the emotion what makes the blind see venture within self obtain the place of creation fuse with knowledge gained and reign supreme in your place of peace

What makes the world go round love buried deep which all seek surrounded by lust and seduction only a mask to conceal the true nature a gift to have to share to give thanks a gift beyond and can compare dare to accept openly and truthfully

Evoke woke all senses tainted through society over time made aware yet ignore walk through the door the first step towards the awaking of the first of the first and pure of purist emotions
