Forgiveness, when there is active bleeding in your wounds

When there is active bleeding
The pain's not receeding

I used to be Christian through and through
And all along, I was taught to do
Even in a day, forgive seventy times seven
And that is the way to go to heaven

But, when there's active bleeding
That pain's not receeding

Forgivesness to some people comes rather easy
Because they prefer to breathe light and free
Even still, when the wound is fresh
These people may find it difficult to pass the test

Because when there's active bleeding
The pain's not receeding

And when those wounds are sutured time and again
They're gonna cringe from previous stabs recalling those bloodstains
And since I'm an ardent propogator of love and forviveness
I believe we must keep attempting; how else will you celebrate Christmas!

But,when there is active bleeding
The pain's not receeding

Sure, forgiveness is important. But, maybe step out of the way
If they keep backstabbing, maybe get far away
I'm not saying forgiveness must cease
Just suggesting, walk away from the drama tease

You can be a well-wisher from a distance
You don't have to provide exemplary assistance
Sometimes, you need to give your wounds time to heal
Especially if at the same site, it's being ruptured with the same deal

Forgiveness is important; but, you can do it from afar
You don't have to keep standing in front of the same speeding car
As long as you know you did your very best
You can put your conscience and the outcome to rest

  1. “Active Bleeding” True Something to Consider Rue

    When Forgiveness is in Play And Surely A Meaning

    in My Personal Life For me… As How Fortunate i am

    To Have The Gift of Forgiveness or Even Basic

    Humanity it Seems ‘These Days’

    And That’s Okay as i surely

    Didn’t Always Put People
    First As All The Energy i had
    Went into Work for Decades

    Yet Anyway Back to “Active Bleeding”

    About 2 Weeks Before my Mother Went into
    Hospice Unexpected on Valentine’s Day 2017

    She Suddenly Came to the Opinion That i Was Demon
    Possessed By The Why i Wrote Although She Had Always

    Supported my Art Before Then And Through All my Experiences

    in Life of Dark There Was No Moment that i Got Mad As i Already
    Understood Just

    How Messy

    The Human
    Condition Will Suddenly
    Get With No Explanation at
    All For i Surely Fell off the
    Face of the Earth Like

    Turning off a Light
    Switch this way
    in My Past

    Fortunately
    Mastering that
    Off and On Switch For
    Now Even Eternally Now
    As Long as i Stay in Flow
    In A Positive Way oF LiGHT
    Continuing to Wire myself this

    Way Anyway after She Went into
    Hospice With “Active Bleeding Brain Cancer”

    For The Reason Her Personality Suddenly changed the
    Way It Did i Was Just Really Glad i Could Be There For Her
    In Total Loving Breath the Way She Was for me When i Fell Down

    For It’s True i Forgive Everyone from the Perspective of A Devil in
    Hell At Least Fortunate Enough for a Few Folks So close to me to

    Forgive Who i Became Then So Far Out of my Control As No One
    Really Showed me What Kind of Intelligence is Most Important Emotional
    Intelligence And Putting People First of Course As Work Will Take that away

    Yes

    People
    First
    Indeed

    A Modern
    Greatest Deficit

    Along with Nature Deficit Disorder
    Of Course Along With the More Natural
    Altruistic Loving Nature of Human that
    Must Be Fed And Watered in a Garden of Love..:)
