Forgive the sun,
when it shines too brightly;
for the days it has made you calm.
Forgive the wind,
when it blows down hard,
on the embers of hope in your heart.
Forgive the water,
when the salt within,
wells up aching tears inside.
Forgive the earth,
when it breaks beneath your feet,
and leaves you with nothing but dark.
To forgive yourself,
you must forgive,
the elements that exist within–
