Iím working on forgiveness, working really hard,
Cause Iíve noticed how it lightens up my spirit and my heart.
But thereís still one soul who I beat up on,
Shame and blame and heap the crud on.
What a painful price that little soul has paid.
So face to face and heart to heart, I think itís time to say:
I forgive you, youíve done the best you could.
I forgive you, I release you from the shoulds.
I accept you as that perfect child of God youíre meant to be.
I forgive you - me.
I wonder why itís easier forgiving someone else,
Mothers fathers, children, anybody but myself.
Can I learn to love myself completely,
The good, the bad, the cool, the geeky?
Well the pieces wonít be falling into place
ĎTil I can look with love upon this face.
When I slip into those unforgiving habits from the past
I promise that Iíll see you clearly in this looking glass.
