Forgive yourself

Why carry that burden,
With you always? 
Why wouldn't you let,
Yourself heal?
Would it be so hard,
To let go?
Why hurt yourself,
When you have always known,
That it wasn't your fault,
That you couldn't change what happened?
Why is it so hard,
To forgive yourself,
When you've been forgiving,
Others who have hurt you?

  4. Such beautiful words, especially the last ones struck a chord within me. Why don’t you forgive yourself when you forgive others for all the wrong doing to you!
