Glory

We glory to God for the gift of forgiveness.
It teaches us to have mercy, to reach out with love
Beyond ourselves and see the child of God within.
It releases our burdens which mount when we hold
Onto revenge, poisoning our soul and we can't seem
To even pray. It releases us as captive to a label,
Captive to the whims of judgment, instead of the
Love you have shown us that is the treasure
Residing within each of us if we choose to
Forgive.
