Before we can forgive the faults in others, we have to forgive the faults in ourselves. I have never seen this truth expressed more beautifully than in the following poem written by revivedwriter….
I yearn to show more love,
But sometimes when I try
The feelings are flavored with basil —
Maybe, what I find myself hating
Is something I dislike within myself,
And forgiveness of this fault
Is the path to greater love
For both of us.
