I forgive you because I want to.
Because I want to free myself from the bitterness and pain.
I forgive you because I want you feel forgiven unconditionally.
Forgiveness kills hate and with hate out of the way
Compassion takes over, wrapping us in a cloak of comfort.
Forgiving you makes me stronger.
It illuminates the imperfections within me.
It gives my love new meaning.

And on the seventh day, I rested.
Following whispers from my inner voice I took time out
to go within
and touch those spots that others can’t reach.
A bit like a Torah edict.
Then my head space opened,
stimulating conversations between beliefs, ethics, fears, contradictions.
Embracing a particular tussle between the existential and the essential.
Or is it my new calling?...
