waking up in 2017

Reading  last night about the power of forgiveness ;

Forgiveness does not mean allowing everything 

it means to start with yourself and forgive yourself 

for not doing enough to stop what you know is wrong, 

when you acknowledge you did not always have the power 

to act, even when you had the power to know, 

when you forgive yourself the deep sleep of so many years

it is possible to wake up with a different attitude 

of compassion and forgiveness for not acting before, 

ensuring that now will be different than before, 

if now will not mean hitting the head against a wall,

nor speaking to a wall

or living behind a wall,

now means taking down the wall

brick by brick,

with an attitude of fortitude;

knowing means acting 

and acting means knowing.
