I Forgive You
Experienced men and women will tell you
When you are truly prejudiced against
When you are truly hurt
Oh, How You Know
And when you truly forgive others,
and you truly let go
everyone around you will know
Make no mistake,
There ARE people who exhibit no prejudice
But, also make no mistake,
EVERYONE will be feel prejudice for something
Everyone will find themselves in the minority in some way
Everyone will at one time do their best, yet be insulted and pained
Everyone at one time will feel the sting, and wonder why
Guilty until proven innocent. That is the small mindeds motto
Nurture friendships everywhere. That is the big-hearteds motto.
And mine, too.
Times change, biases come and go
and as people experience life, their various biases shrink and grow
But make no mistake, when you are hurt,
you know, you know, you know
How have I been prejudiced against? How have I been hurt?
The details do not matter - everyone who has felt it understands.
But I do not have time to waste on them.
Life is short, and there much to do:
Make real solutions. Disperse happiness. Give away love.
Create positive energy.
No, I do not have time for those who are wrong.
They hurt me, yes. They are wrong, yes
And I tell them so, oh definitely yes.
But spend time on them? No. They are not worth it.
I see time and again that there are more people who are big hearted than small minded
If you are big hearted, I welcome you.
If you are small minded, I forgive you.
And if you learned your mistakes,
you are most welcome again in my life.
