Forgive the sun who didn't shine,
the sky had asked her to dine.
Forgive the stars that heard your wish,
the moon prepared their favorite dish.
Forgive the rain for it's attack,
the clouds have tears they can't hold back.
Don't hate the birds because they are free,
don't envy all things they can see.
Don't block the wind, but hear it's cry,
or else the wind may pass you by.
Forgive the storm it means no harm,
could not resist to show it's charm.
Forgive the earth that never turns,
don't hate the sun, because too much it burns.
Life intends to not cause pain,
the flowers bloom from all the rain.
The storm will come and it will pass,
the sun that shines, it grows the grass.
The wind it cannot help but cry,
the stars at night light up the sky.
Forgive the world in which we live,
we'll all find peace if we forgive.
(From Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul III)
This touched me with it's simple yet thought provoking words, and I had to save it in my heart somewhere..
