I always forgive. Even if they haven't the sense to be sorry. I forgive because I don't want the burden of a grudge. Now that doesn't mean I'm going to put myself in their life.

There is evil in the world and if you cannot avoid it, you deal with it and move on. Revenge is a dish best served cold and sometimes a true and honest forgiveness of a person who wronged you is a kind of revenge, as they know they'd not forgive you in a similar circumstance.

I would want to be forgiven by anyone I wronged. I believe God's forgiveness is the same as the forgiveness of those people.

I came across this poem I wrote some time ago:

In that moment when I know
My death is as near as my skin,
I know I would not allow it to
Overtake me as it planned to do.

The numerical odds on death
Increase for people who live
Their lives running down
The steep grassy hill, without

Any thought that there are
Trees rocks. danger at the bottom.
The numerical odds on death
Shrink for people who take

The stone steps lined with
Hand rails, down the hill;
Who sit on a bench along the
Way to rest before continuing.

Though my belief that we are
In charge of our death has
Not a single thing to do with
The numerical odds of things.
