atmosphere blue cloud cloudiness

To meet again in bliss
With the people you love,
You must forgive the foes
You hate.

Lose the antipathy
Against your enemies,
And I will reward you
With peace.


This was written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #117, Antipathy. I usually have a very hard time forgiving people for even little things, so I wrote this poem as a way to think about it.

As a side note, I probably won’t be as active this weekend. I’ll be ok, but I’m feeling pretty depressed and think I need to slow down on social media for just a little bit. Hopefully I’ll be back up to speed soon. — H

      Depression sucks. I’m pretty sure it’s this upswing in the amount of work I have to do at work – it’s going to be hardball until October. Hopefully then I’ll get a little vacation, even!

    Social media can be horrifically addictive. And all that focus on screens can result in disturbed sleep patterns. which in turn results in depression. Good move to cut your usage for a while.

    Forgiving someone who has done wrong by you is definitely one of life’s hardest things to do, but I do believe there is a peace of mind and lightness of the heart that comes with achieving forgiveness. This was a great poem, H.R.R. 🙂
