So much is said about forgiveness. Does forgiveness come from the soul, I wonder? I have heard people say that it is when you forgive, that love encompasses all. To me, it seems that you have to love deeply, in order to even want to forgive. I have hated with passion anyone whom I have ever wanted to forgive. But that passion was rooted in love. And in the moment of absolution, I let go of that love. And with it goes the passion, esteem, and eventually care. It isn’t love, but peace, liberation, and sweet exhaustion that encompass all.

"For the sword outwears its sheath,
And the soul wears out the breast,
And the heart must pause to breathe,
And love itself have rest."
~ Lord Byron.
