I was having problems forgiving people who have hurt me. I sat down and wrote this after I found out that forgiveness is for me (forgiving gives me freedom). I'm well on my way though, down this road of forgiveness...

There is that something that I'm missing.
I'm trying to sprint in knee high mud.
I can get through this, one step at a time.
That was my thinking.

I once saw a healthy looking tree lying on its side.
Something was eating it inside.
It grew weak and couldn't stand,
That's the fall that came after pride.

I was locked within myself for a long time;
Until I found you.
I threw away pride and embraced you tightly.
Where have you been forgiveness?
