Forgive their flaws or forfeit your flavour

By Adeleke Adeite

If someone has hurt or harmed you,
Let them go with their fist full of forgiveness.
Hold them in your heart and you’ll always go blue,
Blocking better things with bricks of bitterness.

If someone has broken and bruised your heart,
Pick up the pieces and fix them in the frame of faith.
Never allow the pains of the past rip your aura apart,
So you will not have a future full of woes and wrath.

Life is a pleasant platform with different performers;
They have different faces, formation and features.
Live to appreciate all that they have come to offer,
But choose the ones you’ll allow into your future…

He who fills his heart with the yelling of yesterday
Will have a future full of the pressures of the past.
To live in the timeless treasures of everyday…
You need to leave tough tears while they last.
