Forgive; not because the other side is right
but because otherwise it means you will be attached
to the object of your hate for as long as you hate.
Detach from hate by forgiving , by letting go of hate
because hate is such a strong glue
and because you do not want hateful beings
connected to you .
Forgive because life is too short
to be connected to those you choose not
to be connected to because
you do not want their energies and their values
polluting your watering hole, the source of life
from which you draw strength
never was nor ever can be
